Tomato Hornworm larvae: sift them out?
Two years ago, the hornworms were awful in my potted tomato plants. Last year, I dug out the top foot or so of soil and replaced it with new. Almost no hornworms last year.
Just wondering. Do you think I could use a compost sifter, run my potting soil through it and back into my pots? (I always renew my potting mix with fertilizer, etc.) Would the sifter be fine enough to get the larvae out? I have seen pictures of them online but really don't have a concept of how big they are.
