Tomato pest ID

I found these handsome little devils on a bunch of my tomato plants this morning. Anybody know what they are? I have never seen them before.

looks like baby lady beetles

Sort of similar but these are bigger and solid red. They are eating the leaves, like a hornworm but they don’t look like that.

Baby potato beetle


Looks like it, thanks! Man, I’m finding loads of new weed and pest problems this year.

Baby potato beetle. You should get rid of it as soon as possible. It gets very nasty very fast.


Yep on the Colorado Potato Beetle. Check the photos, they look very different as adults:


Thanks all, they got squished under my boots! I’ll have to keep scouting for them.
