Pests of brassica crops

Flea beetles

Flea beetles can cause considerable damage to the foliage of brassica plants and can be very hard to manage.

Pollen beetles

Adult pollen beetles (Brassicogethes spp.) are occasional pests of cauliflower and broccoli. The adult beetles feed on the curds or florets causing physical damage. This type of damage usually occurs in mid-summer when new adults emerge from oil seed rape crops and move into other areas to feed.
