Colorado Potato Beetles and What to Do if they Attack

What are Colorado Potato Beetles?

You can identify an adult Colorado Potato Beetle by its yellow body with black stripes running down its back. The larva is red and grows to 3/5" long. It can have rows of black spots along its sides, depending on its age. These beetles don't just eat potato plants — the leaves and stems of tomato, eggplant and pepper plants are also vulnerable to the Colorado Potato Beetle. They often strip the foliage off of entire plants.
