The Infamous Green Horned Caterpillar
Yeah, so these are the guys you have to watch out for on your tomato plants. They are tricky too because if they know you are near they stick out like that and try to look like a branch. If you see a bunch of bare branches then you know you have one because boy, do they strip them.
So I caught this guy before I went on vacation for the weekend, I thought there was a little too much damage to be done by just one guy, but this was the only one I could find.
Then I come back from my trip, look out my window and like half my plant is bare and
THIS GUY was having a Buffet!!
Yeah, so he had a real nice time eating my plant all weekend.
Here is my husband, doing the honors. I hate grabbing them when they are this big because they will wiggle like crazy. So we just trimmed off his branch and threw him over the wall!
So keep an eye out for these guys, luckily once you get rid of them the plant will bounce back.
