My tomatoes are being eaten by black caterpillars. I am not exactly sure what they are and I don't have a picture... they are black and a bit slimy. I have been spraying with Pyola from Gardens alive, but every day they do more damage and every day I pick a dozen or more off. I am afraid I will not get any tomatoes this year. What can I use to get rid of these?
Also I saw this really weird oval shaped light brown bug. It was huge, well over an inch in size. It had eaten a whole branch when I found it. It seemed to have arm like pinchers (like a praying mantis, but it is not one) that it was using to eat. It squished easily when I knocked it off and stepped on it. Anyone know what it is?
