Leaves are riddled with shot holes about 1/8 inch in diameter. Tiny black beetles jump like fleas when disturbed. The leaves of seedlings and eventually whole plants may wilt and die.
Remove all plant debris from the garden after harvest to eliminate spots for adult beetles to overwinter. Treat corn with an insecticide labeled for flea beetles, following the directions on the label.
