Symptoms

Round holes are scalloped out of the upper leaf surface; often they do not go all the way through the leaf. The damaged areas dry up and turn pale brown.

Spot them

Beetles are 2-3 mm long, coloured black or metallic blue, and some have a broad yellow stripe running the length of the wing cases. Flea beetles are often seen jumping off leaves when disturbed.
