I have these little white worms in my two organic tomato plants. Can anyone tell me what they are? Friend or foe?

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
