Caterpillar hornworms on tomato plants

Asked August 2, 2015, 11:59 PM EDT

Huge caterpillars are eating the tomatoes on my potted tomato plants. Is there any organic method of controlling them? I physically remove them and more return each day.

See our pest profile on 'Tomato Hornworms' for monitoring, prevention, and control tips. Handpicking is the least toxic method of controlling them. http://extension.umd.edu/growit/insects/tobaccotomato-hornworm
