Tobacco hornworm

Tobacco hornworm

The tobacco hornworm is the larvae of the Carolina sphinx moth. They generally have 7 stripes along their sides, and reddish 'horn' on the tail. Tomato hornworms have a V shape along their sides & a blue/black tail.

I have tobacco hornworms, but they're all over my tomato plants.
