I had a bug 2 years ago wreck all our pumpkins. It laid eggs under the leaves. So last year I knew what to look for. As soon as I saw them, I took a bottle of diluted dishsoap and squirted all the pumpkins and the plant. It killed them all and didn't hurt the plant.

I would try soapy water before a chemical.

Also, I just bought a trumpet vine and when I went to water it it had little white bugs on it. I doused them with soapy water and haven't seen them since.

Good luck with the creepy crawlers.
