I will be speaking on Pests and Disease in the Garden on Tuesday May 10th, 7 pm, at the Youth Center at the Hocking County Fairgrounds
We will talk about diseases both bacterial and fungal, pests including cucumber beetles and stink bugs and go over identification and control methods including beneficial insects. Hope to see you there. The class is FREE.
Above pic is a Tomato Hornworm in my garden, Tomato variety Juliet. The white eggs casings on the back of the hornworm are from the beneficial insects Braconid Wasps
You should not remove this worm even though it may have caused damage as the wasps will feed on it when they emerge to help control any more hornworms in your garden.
