Catching the Tomato Horn Worm

When I have horn worm damage on my tomato plants, I follow the poop. They are usually just above it. And I also flip old poop off so I can follow the new and not waste my time with the old.

Something else I do is trim back the nibbled stems. It is not likely that they will produce many leaves or blooms that quickly.

With the stripped stems off the plant, I can easily see newly stripped stems.

Finally getting brave enough to pluck those buggers off with my bare fingers but when they are too big I still have to get the gloves. lol
