CLOSED: Please Bug infestation ID!

Sweet Home, OR

I've never had this kind of infestation in my garden. I've been using neem oil and soap and a fogger to spray these plants but, it was a total fail. After that I tried another organic insecticide that failed too. I even tried DE...nothing. What are these bionic bugs???

These are flea beetles, and they are notoriously difficult to control. See and for some suggestions.

Thank you! I'm somewhat new to gardening and now having to become a bug expert. Yep, that's what they are. I had to spray w Pyganic seeing as neem was ineffective. I didn't really worry bc I was going to spray but, the damage they did was so quick I had to pull that variety of lettuce altogether. Thanks again!
