Big Worms On Tomatoes





I have a nice patch of tomatoes in my garden, and only recently I notice

large green worms on them with one large brown horn on their head. They

strip the leaves off. They look to me like a tobacco worm.



They are tobacco worms; that is, they are the larvae of hawk moths, some

of which take tobacco, tomatoes, grapevines and many other plants,

including some of the native weeds of your valley. Pick them off and

crush them, or give them a little snip with the scissors if you do not

like to handle them. They are so large and easily found that such

treatment is easily applied, as in "worming tobacco."
