It took me a week or two at first (i thought slugs could be the culprit, but have a dog, and am hesitant to use sluggo), but I finally caught a couple caterpillars in the act. A couple Spinosad treatments have seemed to keep them at bay since then.

Good to know! Thanks. I have found caterpillars on my tomatoes, but the damage looks different, at least on the tomato leaves.

I am in the East Bay; climate more like central valley.
