Hornworms are once again active. They have completely eaten a seedling and attacked a small tomato. Time to get out the scissors and flashlight and go hunting.

If the letter writter to Organic Gardening magazine is right an ultra violet (black light) would be more useful then a flashlight. The letter, on page 14 of the current issues, says those hornworms flouresce in UV light.

They can also be found in broad daylight, usually feeding in the shade of some foliage. They don't leave the plants during the day only to come out at night.

I seldom see these thing in the daytime, BUT, today I found a monster feeding on my Tasti Lee plant. I made short work of it with a pair of scissors. Messy, but effective.

Looks like that thing ate the growing tip. It's not doing well.
