How can I get rid of stink bugs on my tomatoes? They eat the leaves, the flowers and then the tomatoes. These leaf hoppers have a hard shell and only strong pesticides will kill them and we don't want to spray that on what we eat. I'm about to give up on trying to grow tomatoes. Help!!!!

Rotenone should control stink bugs and it's safe to use in organic gardens. Try Bonide Liquid Rotenone/Pyrethrin Spray, according to label directions. I think you'll find it works well.
