Solution to leaf-footed bug infestation?

Hi all!

Last year, my garden was overrun with leaf-footed bugs, sucking on my tomatoes, squash and okra. Research indicated the best defense was squashing 'em. Ugh!

This year, the bugs are less prevalent, and I've been able to keep on top of them so far. But I want to go on the offensive.

Does anyone have a solution other than hand-picking? I'm using Neem, but that takes a long time to work. I've planted a trap crop of sunflowers and millet, but so far, I haven't seen any bugs on the trap crop.
