Cucumber beetle?

hippylove4uAugust 23, 2014

Is this a cucumber beetle? Finding them of all sizes on backside of cucumber and cantelope leaves. Organic treatment? Using neem oil but it's raining a lot so I'm not sure if it's staying.

Thank you both for the links. Doesn't seem to be the same thing I'm finding. I'm in Miami beach so it doesn't seem that the beetle is native to here & I've never seen a beetle. I'm leaning towards the cucumber moth as the more mature caterpillar has the white stripes down the back.
