Hi, I hope someone can help. I have this bug eating my cucumber plants. I have enclosed an image.
it is about 3/8 of an inch long. It does not look to me like the stripped cucumber beetle that I have seen in many pictures online. (green head ) Do you think that is what it is? I have been picking them off, but they seem to be multiplying like crazy! My vegetable garden is organic and I would like to keep it that way. Any one have any tips on what I can do at this point to get rid of them? My cucumbers are about an inch long and seem to be surviving although the leaves are getting chewed pretty fast. Please help! thanks.
