Default Found a few caterpillars on the tomato plants this am.....

....and began removing them by hand, but realized there were more than I wanted to deal with, and besides I could miss some. So, got out the Spinosad, and gave it to them for breakfast. Fortunately, the plants are inspected daily, and hopefully this will be nipped quickly.

Thanks. Foliage feeding worms/caterpillars is the number one insect on the spinosad label, but BT is next on the hit parade if I have to kick it up a notch. Ed
