Stupid Hornworm Question~
I can deal with most anything in the garden...except hornworms!
My neighbor has been nice enough to do the picking, except that she has a much bigger heart than I do. She refuses to kill them and insists on tossing them in a another neighbor's yard.
My question...will/can they find their way back to my plants?? She seems to think, that once they finish off the tomato branch that has been clipped, they will starve. I'm not so sure. I know moths have a way of sensing/smelling a host plant, but do the caterpillars have a way to navigate back to my maters??
Love to have an answer to this! Thanks for all info/help~
