Helicoverpa zea

Or as Farmer T prefers, “Little bastard.”

We found this tomato fruitworm skulking around in the tomato patch munching on the leaves. Farmer T found a sample of his handiwork this morning, but we did not capture the little criminal until later in the day.  We sentenced him to trial by bird and plopped him near the bird feeder.

You could use pesticides, but that is not our style. So we pluck them off as we find them.
