Bright red, yellow, rainbow or green fruits hang on the vine between green leaves waiting for the perfect time for picking. Then we notice holes in the leaves and fruit, and it is time for battle.

Great video - but you might check the tech on the close caption on the bottom. It’s misspelling a lot of words. Thanks for all you do!

One trick I learned several years ago was to shake the tomato plants when looking for hornworms.  they make a clicking sound when disturbed which is easily heard.  Once you hear the click its easy to know if there are any worms around, and if there is you know approximately where to look.  Always works for me.

Please don’t spray spinosid products.  Especially during the day.  Think about it, the honey bee picks it up and brings it back to the pupae in the hive which are essentially caterpillars and while it may not harm the adult bee, the young pupae are affected.  Thanks!

Thanks for the tip Todd, you’re right it’s important that the spinosid insecticide dries down before bees are active. The dried residue of spinosid has been studied and has no noticeable ill effect on adult honey bees and brood.
