If you've found only one leaf hopper, I'd just squish it! Sevin is registered for use on cucumber plants but it can kill bees so I wouldn't use it unless absolutely necessary. Without bees the flowers won't be pollinated and you won't get any cucumbers. Try squishing the insects or hosing them off with a strong stream of water from the hose. Good luck with your cucumbers.
