Catapiller with things on it.

Recommended Posts

We found these on one of our tomato plants.  It is 1 November 2016...we have only had a light frost as yet.  30 miles west of Chicago.

It is not so much the caterpillar, but the white things that are hanging on it.  Anybody seen anything like this before??  Thanks

Thanks Craig...the wife and I just watched the video.  I mean it...thanks.  :handgestures-thumbupright:  I have a nest of some kind of bees/wasps in the eave of my garage that I have been waiting for cooler weather to destroy.  I may have to re-think that and check out some more information.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

By the time you see the Hornworm covered with these guys the worm is toast.He will no longer eat anything.The Braconid  wasp is definitely a beneficial insect.When I find this sight on my tomatoes I let nature take its course.If the Hornworm doesn't show signs of the eggs it becomes instant fertilizer around here.JAinVA

I was going to tell you that it was the "Crawling Dead" but several others took my lead...

Your question has been answered better than I was going to!  Wish YouTube and the Internet had been around when I was young!

Poor Hornworm. NOT!!!!! Don't kill the wasps. Most all are beneficial. I don't kill any. Just stay away.
