SSPM – Sip and Swat Pest Management

(Not to be Confused with IPM – Integrated Pest Management)

1Sphinx 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.
