Blister Beetles on Tomato Plants

For the second year we are having a problem with blister beetles on our tomato plants. Last year they were pretty much confined to the tomatoes and we treated with pesticides. This year they seem to have spread. I just saw them on plants on the other side of the house. They are eating the leaves, leaving the veins. I forgot to plant marigolds, and now I wish I had. I would like to treat the beetles organically this year if possible. What are some good, fairly inexpensive, organic, nontoxic pesticides I can use?

Here is a site I found. I'm fighting off a Japanese Beetle infestation right now so I am sypmathetic with your plight. Good Luck! Next year I'm planting cat nip & an herb garden along the outside of my veggie garden. The beetles are getting everything! Cukes, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Strawberry. I'm not sure what I'm gonna do this year if the suggested organic deterrents don't work, but I'm going to give it a try!
