    Default Flea Beetles on Red Pak Choi

    I planted some red Pak choi out in the veg bed about a week ago and they are covered with flea beetles and tiny holes on all leaves. Any one got advice to get rid of those beetles? thanks

    There have been several threads on flea beetle recently.

    Chengjing, don't you find that pak choi just bolts in the summer months? I don't sow it until late summer

    Thanks for the reply TS. I grow them all year round, I can't wait for the later summer. They are fast growing, as long as you give them plenty water and feed, they can be ready with in a month. I am on my second harvest this year now. This is a pic of some red pak choi that i grow in the lotty greenhouse.
