What bug is on my tomatillo?

Asked June 2, 2020, 4:40 PM EDT

I found this bug on my tomatillo plant. There was about 10, & orange eggs I squashed as well. I thought potato or cucumber beetle? I had been using bioNeem for what I thought was flea beetles on my mesclun, as well as my whole garden.

It is a cucumber beetle. You can continue to squish them or pick them off and drown them. https://extension.umn.edu/yard-and-garden-insects/cucumber-beetles
