This bug has been sucking the juices out of my tomatoes & peppers. What is it, and how do I get rid of it?

That is a Coreid ...Leaf footed bug...some folks call them Shield bugs due to body shape and others call them stink bugs.

These are not Stink Bugs. Stink Bugs smell and are a nuisance. They are two different species. These are Broad Leaf-Footed Bugs yes, but not stinks bugs.

You are correct Gilliansara...coreids are not stink bugs. A portion of my post got lost. The original : ...and some folks call them stinkbugs, but the two are not one in the same.
