Wilted leaves and tiny insects in my tomato plants

I have about 5 tomato plants in the garden. They have plenty of fruit on them. For the past 2-3 weeks the leaves have kind of folded in half. The wasps also have been going in and out of the folded leaves. Lots of wasps.

I cut off a leaf just now and saw some pinhead size (some smaller), brown little larvae. I think it's larvae, but they are moving around. They are football shaped. So maybe not larvae just tiny insects. No wings. They are on the top side of the leaf.

I think this is going to kill my plants. Does anyone know what this is? I am in Colorado, about 5,700 ft. z5
