Did something lay eggs on my tomatoes?
I have a 6-pack of Rutgers tomatoes that I have keeping outside during the day and bringing in at night. The other day I noticed a tiny pearly ball attached to the bottom of a leaf with a few tiny strings. It was about the size of the head of a small pin. Closer inspection revealed several more, all stuck singly to the bottoms of leaves or to stems.
I picked them off of course, but I'm curious to know if those were hornworm eggs, or if not, what? And should I throw the whole batch out? I could separate them from my other tomato plants, plant them somewhere else.
My other tomato plants seem unaffected.
