ME!!! They took out 2 of my cucumber plants and the other 4 plants started looking very weak before I even REALIZED I had them! I was getting very large cukes, so I thought the look of the leaves was due to the large amount of rain we've had over the past couple of weeks. Closer examination - I found the little buggers! I've been picking them off. Today was the first day I didn't find any back on them. I'm just glad they haven't spread to any other plants..
i've been fighting them all stinkin' summer...but it's paid off. i haven't lost anything this year due to the bugs...although the weather claimed a few. but that's okay. i had my daughter squishing them for me...she says, "eww mom, they stink." lol. it was cute.

Awh! I'll have to pick up on that trick. My daughter follows me into the garden and picks all my green peppers... before they're ready. I'll have to get her to start picking the bugs.
These are one of those bugs that are just "ew!"- the adults don't bother me, but the baby white ones are just gross! I noticed yesterday my cukes are looking better. I think I've won this battle. Hopefully I can hold them off.
