My Newest Enemy

During a walk in my garden this evening I made a few discoveries. The first couple of the discoveries were good but the last one was not. TOMATOE HORNWORM!

I was not sure what it was until after I photographed it and got rid of it. I have noticed that my tomatoe plant was being eaten by something. But I could not find what was causing the damage.

All those white things on the Hornworm are wasp larva. The larva feed off of the worm and are helpful in the garden.

These devastating worms turn into the beautiful Hummingbird Moth.

Thanks for visiting!
