Don't know but BT will kill it. It doesn't look like a sphinx moth or anything good. PJ

You know what they say about assume! (A** out of U and ME!)I assumed you were an experienced organic gardener sorry!
Organic gardeners use evironment friendly products to control pests. Bt is a biological agent that kills larve.
Most people are familiar with BT with mosquito controlling "dunks or donuts". Here's some more info on BT. PJ
