I told her to pull it off and stomp it. But I'm afraid it's too late.

Well, sometimes they can come back. But yeah, the thing did quite a bit of damage.

This pepper plant is not coming back! RIP, pepper plant.

I told her she needs to check daily, hornworms are insidious.

They are. They can do so much damage in such a short amount of time. Blech...

I used to pull them off and throw 'em over the back fence for the birds until the new neighbors built a house and moved in.

Apparently they are really good bait for fish. I just stomp them, but I make sure it's on the lawn, as they stain the deck.

I suppose you could still do that, depending on whether you like you new neighbors or not.

Made some great fish tacos.

While it was a full day trip out, only 2 fish were caught (that's why it's called fishing and not catching), but a good time was had by all.
