Lady Killers

A lively bunch of ladies wearing spotted red dresses were unleashed in Tomato Town on Sunday to combat an infestation of what we think are flea beetles.

A lady gets her prey.

A lady gets her prey.

The little fleas have turned our eggplant leaves into lace, and we are wanting to make sure they don’t turn to the tomato plants. Julie and I don’t like to use chemicals, so we thought we’d give ladybugs a try. They are available in a mesh packet from most garden stores. We paid $9 for “Garden Ladys” which claims 2000 of the pest eaters per bag. We’ll see how they do, and if they stick around. They have 40 tomato plants to choose from, so we hope they’ll stay, seek and destroy.
