I believe leaf hoppers are all bad guys. TD, can you snap a photo straight down?

No luck finding it today so far. Maybe it has hopped the hedge into the neighbour's row garden.

Got the photo of the insect sitting on a Canada Crookneck Squash. Whether it be good or bad it is no more.

That is it. Already killed it but now I should search for eggs. I hate bugs.

Update:
I inspected the underside of leaves and found bunches of eggs under three leaves. I removed them using duct tape and then squished them.

This critter has been hanging out on my remaining Cherokee tomato. Any thoughts?

Looks like the fifth instar nymph of the southern green stink bug, which sucks the juices out of fruits & vegetables.

Oh great. I thought it was just the tomatoes, but then while cleaning my lettuce leaves off I found another. I've treated the tomato with spinosad. I'm thinking of using diamaceous earth spray on the lettuce.

Darn, and it's such a pretty bug. It goes through such different looking stages that it could slip past scrutiny.
