My garden is getting overrun by this bug. I have over 300 perennials and is is eating everything except sedum. I have tried Ecosmart bug killer to start any ideas.

Eco-Smart should take care of the bugs but you have to directly spray them for it to be effective. Likewise with Insecticidal Soap. If neither of these products work for you, try a neem oil based pesticide. Green Light is one brand name; Rose Defense is also neem oil based. Best wishes with your garden!
