    I have encountered this beetle repeatedly, abdolutely skeletonizing any vegetable plant leaves in my garden (in Long Island, NY).

    Any IDs? And ways to best them? IMG_0057.jpg

    The back does not have the long stripes of the colorado potato beetle. It is blotchy tan, brown/ black.

    I should have tried to get a better picture, but the last one flew away when I fiddled about too much posing him.
