Bug ID with picture...

Post  PeonyLover on 5/19/2012, 12:57 pm

I have looked through the posts but with no luck. Even looked a bit online so maybe one of you might know what this is. I have not killed it...yet Laughing want to find out if its the culprit of my leaf munching. So far he (or someone) had munched on my peppers and basil.

Any help would be great!
I am planning a late night garden hunt tonight to correspond with my son's backyard "camp-out". Should be fun! lol!
