Hi everyone,
I have a problem with a kind of insect that I don't know its name. I am growing tomato and the plant is currently about 20-30 centimiters. I found that there are a lot of kind of green insects that you can see in the picture.
I have already used Neem two times but the insect looks resistent to Neem. What should I do?
Thanks!

I have never seen this insect before but if you can get a spinosad based insectcide it will kill all insects and most caterpillars

The OP has used Neem twice to no avail, so I would say it doesn't work. If you can't get spinosad can you a pyrethrum product?

I thought I should be more patient when applying Neem, no?

If an insecticide hasn't killed the pest in 24 hours it probably isn't going to. If I knew what this insect is I could give a more definitive answer as to what to use. If you could get a much better image of the bug its possible I could identify it

Not sure if this mystery was solved but looks like edema/oedema to me.
