Need advice on pests

Asked July 9, 2020, 6:42 PM EDT

Please see attached photo. Can you tell me what these pests are and how to get rid of and prevent them? Also, I have been using Sluggo to deter slugs, I’m wondering what is causing the multiple holes in the leaves of this broccoli?

Thank you for your question. I am guessing what vegetable this is, but it is severely infested with aphids and you can find help here: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/r108300811.html The holes in the leaves are probably caused by flea beetles: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/r108300511.html Your plant’s leaves do not have the leaf margin (edge) damage caused by slugs, although they may be eating other leaves or plants. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
