  • Holey salad leaves

    Hi,

    Could anyone tell me what this little fella is?

    Eats all my spinach and lettuce but not pea and bean leaves.

    Thanks

    Oops, looks like photos are not allowed and I cant edit the post.
    It is a tiny black beetle with 2 yellow stripes down its back, from head to tail. Makes tiny holes in ghe leaves, which brown around the edges of the hole.

        Cryptocephalus does seem to be there about but I cant find an exact match in a Google search. Hopefully this will be enough to find a cure.

          Some flea beetles have white or yellow stripes,they make little holes & jump a lot. Their preference is radish if you sow some about a foot away,they’ll gather amongst the radish,I tried this with rocket. If the rockets in a raised pot they don’t seem to get that high.

            I think that is a fourlined plant bug. Never heard of it before, but I think it looks like these beggars:
