Small winged purplish-red bugs on brandywine tomato?

Small winged purplish-red bugs on brandywine tomato?

Post  UnderTheBlackWalnut on 5/12/2011, 12:50 pm

Ok guys - I need your experience here. The good news is I'm growing my tomatoes SFG style in my front yard and they are growing despite the black walnut towering over my backyard. YEA! The bad news is I went out this morning to really give the plants a once over...saw a few little bugs on my other toms and peppers and just pulled them off. But, I have never had a brandywine before. It seems to be attracting these small purplish-red winged bugs. These are almost like aphids but they are a purplish-red?? They don't look like those little red teeny mites we often get here on 'maters. There are also these little white slivers (are these the eggs?). My pic came out fuzzy and I can't take another right now because I tried to squish every one of them and take off the white things.


I've also taken a pic of the entire plant so you can see it.


About 9 days ago I cut some bottom leaves from a couple of the other plants in the adjoining 3 squares. They looked like THIS. The other leaves don't seem to have much of this at all.




The plants still look decent but I am trying hard to catch any problems early. What are these and what do I need to do? Smile Thanks so much for any help. Smile

Aphids come in several colors, I have the white and red varieties on my tomatoes.

They seem to suck water from the leaves, and leave a sticky substance...
I use Neem Oil spray (organic). I spray at dusk to keep from bothering the bees.
