Are they doing harm to your crop?

YES! I'm only worried about the littlest of seedlings theres a set of heirloom tomato plants that are taking the brunt of it unfortunately they dont really have enough leaves to lose any. The bigger tomatoes are doing okay with just marginal leaf damage

I have a 2gallon bug sprayer. The ones u pump.
I use soapy water for bug spray in my garden.
Can get a lemon scented dish soap or soften a bar soap in a quart of water then pour into bug sprayer n add 1gallon of water to it. Pump and spray. You will have to repeat after it rains.

A solution of Dr. Bronner's soap can be used.
