Backyard Bugs . . . The Tarnished Plant Bug

This tarnished plant bug, Lygus lineolaris, was found on a basil plant. Apparently, our little pretty is quite destructive. One site states that "the tarnished plant bug is among the most damaging of the true bugs . . . " And Wikipedia notes that "No truly effective or reliable management options currently exist."
