Hi Linda - not clear what your question is here... Are you expecting a yes or a no? Or are you interested in learning how to control the bugs organically? If you would clarify your question I'm sure you'd get a better answer.

if the answer is yes then what is being used. As of last season Cornell was not any closer in solving this imported bug. Nothing other than plucking and putting then into soapy water was suggested last season. My tomato crop was devastated to the extent that I will not grow any soft fleshy fruit until a better solution is uncovered. Sorry for the cloudiness of my first question.
