Worm or Caterpillar Eating Tomatoes

EvanDSaysMay 19, 2013

Hi everyone,
First post here! I just started gardening and am already running into issues with pests. I seem to have worms or caterpillars eating my unripe tomatoes.

Here are pictures of the tomatoes that were eaten and the work/caterpillar that did the damage:

I live in Houston, TX if it helps identify the pest. Do any of you have any ideas what this pest is and how to kill them?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
