Northeast SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
Control of Red-Headed Flea Beetles
The adults are shiny black with a reddish head, oval, 3.0-6.25 mm long, and have antennae nearly half as long as the body. Their hind legs are enlarged and they are capable of jumping, hence the name flea beetle. Adults frequently will feed on tender new shoots or growth.
