Cuke Beetle!

I had zero, zilch, none, nadda cukes this year. Cucumbers are easy, they do well in Texas, this is very sad. I had many lush plants, slowly they wilted to a soupy mesh and this is one of the only pests I could find. It's a cucumber beetle. I think he had help in this melee. I spotted another bug, maybe identified it. I can't remember the name at the moment but its MO is to inject digestive juices in the leaves which causes the aforementioned soupy mess. ARRGGGG!! This is WAR!
