Safer Brand Tomato & Vegetable Insect Killer Ready-to-Use, 32 oz. Questions & Answers
My plant leaves look chewed! Do you know what type of insect might do that?
Insects that have the ability to chew plants must have special cutters in their mouths for this purpose. Such insects may include caterpillars, beetles, and grasshoppers, for example.
How do I know if my plant is being attacked by an insect or a disease?
If it’s an insect, the plant may have holes in its leaves. Turn the leaves over and you may see the insects themselves clustered on the underside of the leaves. You may also see and feel a sticky substance if it’s an insect because the insect will leave a secretion on the plant.
I have really big larvae in my garden, and my neighbor says they are Tomato Hornworms. They are attacking my tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants. How do I get rid of them?
B.t. (Bacillus thuringiensis) is an excellent way to get rid of them without harming beneficial bugs. It actually works on most caterpillars. When the worm ingests the B.t., it works as a gut rot poison that makes the worm stop feeding. The tomato hornworm will stop feeding immediately and die within days.
