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
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
