Tomato HornWorm's (S. Central MI) Needing Relocation Advice
I am a brand new gardner. I saw my first two HornWorms today on a small (not yet producing) "container" tomato plant. I do not kill anything, all rodents and pests are removed unharmed and relocated (besides killing of flies and fleas, which I am not proud of). I feel that our Karmic future & Inner Happiness is directly affected by our actions as the "Dominant Species" or Natures "Care Takers" as all species other than the human species do not have any of their OWN life choices.
I will relocate these two guys into an area on my land where they have vegetation, though I am unsure what NATIVE plants they will thrive on. Any advice would be helpful. I don't want to do them harm by placing them into a group of bushes that may be toxic? For the time being I can hold them in a 10 gallon aquarium with their own tomoto plant, a few inches of clean soil and some soda bottle lids of water.
