I went out to my garden yesterday and found hornworm poop all over the rim of the stock tank they are growing in, plus on the leaves. It took me awhile, but I found a huge one (about 4" long). I relocated him/her. But a fair amount of the top leaves of the tomato plants were eaten and there was poop from one end of the stocktank to the other( approx 6' long). I had removed one just 2 days prior. It's hard to believe I could have missed thsi one. So..........any tricks on finding them? Yesterday I looked and looked and looked and didn't see one. They're pretty good at blending in. Any tricks of finding them? Thanks.
