Tomato worm attacks

BoidAugust 8, 2011

I had a small army of tomato worm attack my pepper plants and a few are nothing but sticks. Can they be saved and if so what can i do to help them along.

If the roots are good and the sun doesn't cook them they usually come back.
I have a mite problem and my plants are sticks at one time or another but they usually come back.
Get some catterpillar killer for your plants.
Shop around,I see it for $6.00-$10.00 at different places.

Yeah, long as the roots are still good (tomato worms don't bother roots), you should still be fine.

Move them into the shade, give them some water, and they should bounce back. Peppers are pretty resilient once they get going.
