Wat is this and how do i get rid of it....??
At first glance it looks like a striped cucumber beetle but it's not. It doesn't have a black head. It is a Goldenrod Leaf Beetle (Trirhabda canadensis).

@Chuck is probably right as usual, but I found a similiar one.

clay colored leaf beetle anomoea laticlavia

I would try insecticidal soaps, oils,but if you go hardcore try Bifenthrin, permethrin, or one of the other pyrethroids labeled for insect control in landscapes It should give more than adequate control of claycolored leaf beetles. Pyrethroids are toxic to many insects, and are also repellent to insects so the tree will be unattractive to other beetles and bees after it has been treated.
