Hi Karen and Welcome!

I have been MIA due to illness for a few days (I am also 34 wks pg). I will have DH bring me my gardening books later and get back to you on the blister beetles.

Horseradish is supposed to deter blister beetles and the book "Carrots Love Tomatoes" recommends interplanting it if you have a blister beetle problem.

SOme tips here from Mother Earth News: http://www.motherearthnews.com/Ask-Our-Experts/Organic-Gardening/Blister-Beetles.aspx

Alfalfa attracts blister beetles. Do you have that growing near you? You could plant a bit (as far from the garden as possible) and they might be more attracted to it.

I will keep looking for you and see if I come up with anything else.

Sorry I wrote this last night and never clicked post. :)

Neither my dh or I have been able to find anything that would help deter blister beetles.
