Wild cats!

Noooooooo!! We found another CATerpillar on our tomato plants! But we didn't find it before it chewed through ten or so fruits. Wifey found it. She seems to have a real talent for spotting worms. She married me, after all.

It looks like a "yellow-striped Army worm." Hmm. He looks big and scary, but for some perspective, compare it to a human finger.

Talk about a voracious appetite! This is actually the second one of these mo-fo worms we've found. Not sure if the Bt is working or not. Saw somewhere that, if you don't catch the worms in the first half of their lifespan, the Bt won't affect them. What an intelligent design that is!
