And here is a tomato with a huge bite taken right out of it!
If you are lucky, your hornworm will look like this one. "Lucky!" you say, "That is completely gross!" Yes, but this nature. Not always pretty.
The reason I say that you are lucky is because a predator has found the hornworm even before you did. She is a parasitic wasp, and the larvae she has deposited on this guy will not only kill him, but will hatch out many more beneficials to protect your future crops. So, it is important to leave him right where he is. Disgusting, I know. Speaking of disgusting...how do you get rid of the hornworm with no parasites?? He is too big to squish!! A proper burial, I suppose.
