Hollyhock Flea Beetle

My Hollyhock leaves are like lace and being eaten by a flea beetle with a rust coloured head.  I have managed to squish 100-200 of the blighters but they just keep coming.  Does anyone know what will deter the blighters?  Preferably non chemical!  
Also present are a very small weevil type bug, with the long snout.  Again any ideas would be very very grateful.

    Mind is the same @jillyosborn, I've been spraying with Neem Oil,and it seems to be not as bad. I think if there hadn't been so much rain,washing the oil off,the results may have been better. It's such an annoying blight.
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.
