A tomato bug was a general term for any type of bug that interfered with the growth of tomatoes on the vine.

In 2372 on New Earth, Kathryn Janeway and Chakotay were concerned that the Talaxian tomatoes they had planted would be devoured by New Earth's equivalent of tomato bugs, assuming such insects were present there. (VOY: "Resolutions")
