I use coffee grounds. Grounds have kept my eggplant from the flea bettles and my squash from squash bugs. Apparently they hate coffee grounds. Just take your used coffee grounds and place around the main stems.

I can see how this can help when the plants are younger, but what about when they get older and turn in to Audrey II and their leaves are all over the garden? Or is it that they won't be a problem if the bugs don't establish themselves early in the season??

Thanks!

Jennifer
