- plant many marigolds and petunia around your potato plants
- Sprinkle cayenne powder
- pland onions with your potato plants to keep your potato plants healthy
- Sprinkle this special white powder on the leaves of potato plants. You can buy this white powder at any hadware store. This white powder will deter and kill beetle bugs from eating all the leaves of the plants. If beetles eat all the leaves from the potato plants, that means this will stop the growth of potatoes. If this happens, dig them up. You will still have some potatoes. Most of them will be small.
