How to control Pest in the Brinjal plants in Home Gardening

Updated: Sep 11, 2021

  • Flea Beetles is the most common pest, but a healthy eggplant will be able to withstand damage. Grow plants under row covers until they are large enough to tolerate leaf damage.

  • Powdery Mildew can affect eggplant. This appears as white, powdery spots on the leaves which may turn yellow and die. Planting resistant varieties when available, planting in full sun, and provide good air circulation.

  • Mealybugs are sometimes an issue as are potato beetles, lace bugs, and mites. If the flowers on your eggplants form but then fall off, or if fruit does not develop these are symptoms of pests in the plants

  • Most pests and diseases can be controlled organically with Insecticidal soap and Neem oil mix spray.
