Never before seen type of tomato bug
by Laurent Philippin
I just started my tomatoes, and they came from boses tech school that my son goes to.
These plants are about 11-inches tall and the leaves are being attacted by some kind of bug that looks like a miniture bear rug with some kind of clear suction type material in an ora type configuration all around it.
I've never seen any thing like these. I looked at the types of insects that attack tomatoes and there is nothing like them. They are flat, about 1/4-inch rectangular-shaped with like 2 front arms off the side of the body, and 2 back legs off the back side of the body. They are flat, not stink bug, not at all.
They are putting small holes in the leaves. i live in Greenfield, NY. This is really puzzling me. Anybody know what kind of insect this might be so I can do something to kill them?
