I should add that the eggs kind of look like squash bug eggs.

Sorry, I can't see much of the egg nor the nymphs, certainly not enough to make an identification. It is very doubtful that they would be squash bugs on your tomato, though.

Try to get some better images so that we can help you.

They do look like squash bug eggs and babies. Need a better picture though.
rhizo I don't know what kind of system you have but with most browsers you can hold down the Ctrl button and roll the wheel on your mouse to magnify the page/picture. Roll it the opposite way to make it small again.

They do not look like any squash bug I have seen and the black spots do not look like any squash bug eggs I have ever seen. Enlarging the picture results is an out of focus picture, though.

No they are not squash bug nymphs, I have plenty of those, but the eggs look similar. Here are some more pics if it will help. If not, I will go try to get some better pics.

I'm beginning to think kimmsr would disagree with anything I have to say. Please ignore it. Here's a picture of squash bug nymphs and eggs on my zucchini last year. They sure look the same to me.
