Hi. This was soft bodied and was eating my tomatillo plant. What is it? How can I kill it?

Hi Reid, check out Diatomaceous Earth .. the food grade DE is great for veggies and totally safe for humans and animals (but not insects) to eat. You'll need a duster to apply it.

Possibly the three-lined potato beetle (Lema trilineata).

Hand pick, squish or use a soap spray.
