A couple of disappearing Hornworms
Within the last couple of weeks, I've found 3 hornworms on my Sweet 100 tom. Two of them had already been providing a food source for the next generation of wasps in the neighborhood so I left them where the were. The third I brought to the front of my house where it became the media for a couple of Robins tug of war. I could swear they had smiles on their faces.
I check on the two on my plant for a couple of days with no change in status. But a few days after that I was talking to my neighbor and wanted to educate her as what to search for when inspecting her tomato plants. When we got to the dwelling of the two impregnated hornworms on my plant, they were both gone.
Has anyone followed the aftermath of a host hornworm and knows what might have happened to my two guys?
Thanks and be well............elliot
