I have a serious problem already with my 2-week old tomatoes which I normally don't see until the high heat of the summer when the plants may be stressed. I have, what I refer to as, flea beetles but I'm not sure of thier true name. The are the size of the head of a pin and are coppery metalic and are roundish or dome shaped. The make tiny holes in the leaves of my tomato plants to the point of the leaf dying.

I have been spraying the plants with a horticultural oil/soap mixture but they return the next day.

Does anyone have any tips for me? I am already having to replace a roma translplant only 2 weeks after planting it.

What I would try is spraying with Garrett Juice with 2 oz of orange added and then dust the plants with the new Soil Mender DE. Use other DE if you have it but this new product is about twice as effective.
