Hornworms on Thai Pepper Plant
We are growing some tomats and peppers in containers and have been picking tomat hornworms off of our tomats. We did not think to check on the pepper plants. One day, I was inspecting our Thai peppers and noticed that what looked like someone was picking our peppers. The next day we noticed little black droppings around the pepper plant and sure enough, a hugh fat hornworm was eating the Thai hot peppers. Other sweet and hot banana and poblano were not infested.
Has any one had this pest and if so, how do we control it besides picking them off? why would the hornworm prefer the hot type?
