Disappearing Tomato Buds - Knowledgebase Question

Question by sherajaspr

It seems that something likes to eat only the tomato buds of my plants. I go out to my garden at different times of the day and night hoping to catch whatever it is, but I do not have any luck. It seems like one minute the buds are there and the next they are gone.Please help!

This sounds like something a bird or a chipmunk might do, but I would be more likely to suspect the blooms are simply falling off. This can happen for example due to hot days or nights, cold days or nights, windy weather, damp weather, and even lack of pollination.
