Abstract:Serious damage to tobacco is caused frequently by the feeding of adults of the tobacco flea beetle (Epitrix parvula (F.)) on the leaves, stems, and roots of the plants. Complete destruction of tobacco in plant beds may be caused by such feeding when the plants are very small. In addition to the direct damage caused by the feeding of the flea beetles on the small plants in the plant bed, it has been shown by Levin (1940) that the tobacco plant bed is the most important breeding ground of this beetle during the early part of the season.
