??Curling leaves, white bugs, green bugs, black bugs, tan bugs??

Not sure why my tomatoes are being attacked so viciously by what appears to be every 6 legged parasite I can imagine. Lol!

I'd like to prevent/eliminate whatever infestation I seem to have but I'm not sure how to proceed.

So far this whole growing season I've remained organic, so if there is an organic solution for these pests, I'd love to hear it.

Thank you very much for the reply. It's definitely appreciated.

Do you happen to know of any sort of organic sprays that I could put on the plants to prevent aphids from returning once I've pinched 'em all away? I think I might try spraying them off into a ditch or something because finding them all and pinching every one of them might be a bit too tedious for my likes.

Thank you again.
