I sometimes find this on some of my Salvias and I've been wondering what it is.

I took some pics the other day.

Thanks!

I believe it's a moth larva, Marilyn. I'm just not sure what kind of moth.

Maybe Janet will know. @JRsbugs

Sorry, there's a lot of caterpillars, I've checked out some and tried a search including Salvia but I'm not finding it.

I can't really see it well enough, but Marilyn, could it be Tobacco Budworm - Heliothis virescens?

You could be right! I thought it might have been a 'bad' cat, so I've been getting rid of them whenever I see them.

Thanks everyone for all your help! I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up
