Garden Pests

Anonymous added on March 29, 2012 | Answered

I have a 20' by 20' garden and grow tomatoes. There are these weird bugs that sting my tomatoes. Sevin Dust does not have an effect on them. They look like giant red ants with reed bodies and long spider legs. What can I do to rid my garden of these pests? What the heck are they?
