I see you've just joined up -- there's a tomato problem solver post that can generally be found on the first page of this forum.

Specifically, I'd recommend you go to the link "how to manage pests". That may help you to pinpoint your problem a little better.

RE: small worms in tomatoe

Here is a recipe for a tomato plant cocktail. This is for feeding, disease prevention and bug control. 1 gal water, 1/4 C baking powder, 1/4 C ammonia, 1/2 C epson salts and 1 can of regular (not light) beer. Douse plants six weeks after planting then 3 weeks later and 3 weeks after that. No more worms.

Red, what ingredient in the 'cocktail' you posted would have any effect whatsoever on tomato worms?
