Tiny holes in eggplant leaves

I have tiny holes in eggplant transplants. The plants have about 6 leaves. Do you think they will bounce back and is there anybody who can recommend a natural pesticide? :?:

Do you see tiny black flea beetles on any of the plants.? If so just hand pick and smash them for a few days. That will cull them down until they decide to leave. Flea beetles seem to be active for a few weeks and then mostly disappear. At least that is the case here in my S.C. yard and garden.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.
