After 5 years of gardening, this is the first year we have had such a large issue of devastating hornworms eating our tomato plants. We have had them before but never in these numbers. Each evening I go out to the garden and kill about a dozen more. These little creatures can completely destroy a tomato plant in one day if the conditions are right.
So like in years past, I was paying attention to any damage that I noticed.
Now, you can pick these worms off by hand and put them in a bucket and feed them to your chickens who will happily gobble them up. But I don’t like picking these squishy worms off my plants when I could be blowing them off the plant. C’mon, lets be honest, whenever I can get some trigger time, I take it. And this attack of hornworms over all my tomatoes gave me a perfect excuse to have some fun.
So how do you deal with your tomato hornworm problems each summer? If you decide you want to give my method a try, leave a comment below. A small Daisy Buck BB gun will only set you back less than $20 at your local ChinaMart.
