(Not to be Confused with IPM – Integrated Pest Management)
Sphinx Moth is often mistaken for a hummingbird; it is the source of Tomato Hornworms. Yuk!
Cabbage Looper Moth. Double Yuk!
The memory of tomato hornworms and cabbage loopers is still burning a hole in my brain and I am not going to let them get the best of my plants this year. It’s time find the flyswatter, to pour a glass of wine and hang-out near the porch light. This year they have been falling asleep on the stucco wall; this makes them easy to swat. If I swat the moths now I can reduce the tomato hornworm and cabbage looper popluation in my garden – maybe I can even eliminate all of them?
I’ll go see how many bottles of wine we have in the pantry – - – and I’ll get back to you on this.
