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?
