    I use the "pick-N-squash" method. Gotta look close, the muthas are camo.
    If you wait for the other stuff to work you will only have a stem left.

    LMAO! Each morning and when I get home, I pull up a deck chair (the plants are in pots) and scrutinize every leaf and branch.....they are hard to spot! Neighbors must think I'm weird.....little do they know, just how much...

    I'm having trouble with them too Brian. So far I've just hand picked them off of the plants, then I feed them to my chickens. (they love them. lol )

    I have to wear heavy duty gloves to touch them...cause I'm a wuss.

    Spray 'em w/ BT spray and they wont take more than two or thee more bites. Plus, the eggs are generally laid in batches, and if you've only seen a couple, you will most likely see more.

    Plants and/or worms.

    Bacillus thuringiensis is a naturally occurring bacterium that is extremely lethal to almost all larvae ( the hornworm is that), but is safe for all warm blooded animals.

    You can find it under many different brand names in any garden center.

    Most of the products here are BT. while most of the prices are ridiculous, you will most likely recognize something that you have seen locally.

    Just read the active ingredients on the label and look for bacillus thuringiensis.

    If you want to confirm the safety of it there are tons of articles on the web.
