Hi, I recently found this beetle eating my eggplant leaves. Not sure what it is or how to naturally get rid of it.

This Three Lined Potato Beetle, Lema daturaphila, feeds on the leaves of potatoes and other related plants in the family Solanaceae. Eggplant is a member of that family. You may reference BugGuide for additional photos and information.
