Here’s someone removing one! I found a similar looking cat in two tomatoes from that plant. I thought she was going to cut herself with the boxcutter!
Will you do this operation?
Shrinkrap, you may be right, Helicoverpa zea, the Corn Earworm attacks tomatoes and lots of other vegetables, hence other names, such as Tomato Fruitworm. Bt var kurstaki or Berliner should control them, but constant coverage is necessary as it’s most effective on younger larvae.
Nasty bugs, they’re cannibals and will eat other insects as the get older!
Yet another reason for having a plumber’s torch.
I used a pot. grin
E T A I do have a torch, but not a plumber’s. Attaches to a can of something, a bit disappointing for what I’d intended.
Lol, I’m with @Auspicious on this one. Put that back…ugh. Life as a gardener is hard when you’re creeped out by bugs and wormy things.
You should have seen my refrigerator when I was taking various anatomy classes! Roomies didn’t try that twice!
Alright! The last thing you want is to have that thing mature and lay more eggs.
I think I would have bought my own fridge!
I can get you a Lowes link if you like.
