Looked out the sliding glass door today and see little black pellet like pieces on one of the stepping stones, my first thought-that’s poop from a fat tomato hornworm:
I went outside to inspect, and found big papa:
It was neat to watch him chew for a whopping two seconds before I was no longer amused at the rate with which he was devouring my tomato plant. See the pile of leaves underneath him? Unfortunately, he had to go.
Those are the worms we used to smash with baseball bats when we were kids. Ours were about twice that size though and used to POP when you hit them, LOL. Glad you found him before he ate the whole plant.
We had one of those on our eggplant last week. Guess where he ended up… in a frying pan and then on Geoff’s plate for breakfast. Let me know if you have a lot, Geoff loved the taste!
