Now the Colorado Potato Beetles have arrived. Will pyrethin work?

15 years ago

I have kept the flea beetles at bay with a pyrethin spray, but now the colorado potato beetles have arrived, laying orange larvae on the leaves and the adults munching away. I have 8, 18-foot rows of potatoes, so it's too many to go through by hand and pluck off every darn one and destroy each leaf with larvae.

I sprayed last night with a pyrethin spray but not sure if that works on colorado potato beetles. Or for the larvae. Will this be sufficient?

Or if there is a better organic spray, please let me know.
