Hi, my name is Karen.
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.

Welcome to the board!
This is what I found on blister beetles.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
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. :)
