Tomato plant bug identification?


I’m new to this and have had good luck with my first-ever tomato experiment (still have over a dozen small tomatoes on each of three plants), but I noticed this bug on one of the Little Porters this morning. It was a little less than 1/8" long. Anyone know what it is?

This is not a good bug. You need to deal with it. I may be wrong but I think it is wooly aphid.

Thank you! I immediately picked it off & squished it and haven't noticed any others since. I'll remain vigilant, however.
