white spots on tomatoes

What causes the white spots under the tomato peel and what can stop them?
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

Feeding from tomato stink bugs causes the white spots on and under the skin of the fruit.  Often the period of feeding from stink bugs is limited, so you may not need to control them. If you do decide to control them insecticidal soap can be effective in reducing their population. Also, keep the area near tomato plants weed free. Weeds are where the stink bugs overwinter.
