Combating Tomato Hornworms

3 months ago

Earlier today I saw the bitten off stumps on some of our tomato plants, then at night, with a light, we found two young horn worms. We suspect there are more, going by the damage...just have not found them yet.

Question: to create better visibility, how many leaves can I safely cut off my indeterminate tomato plants without harming the plants ? The bottom leaves below the first fruits were already removed, and today I removed some more because it was so hard to see through the thick of it where the horn worms might be hiding.
