-In late spring, the large adult lay eggs on the lower side of foliage that hatches within a week. -Caterpillar larvae hatch in late spring and feed for 4–6 weeks before creating a cocoon.
– These worms will start emerging in the spring and begin laying eggs once again as adults.
These two worms are huge and cause the same kind of destruction to plants in the nightshade family. The only way to tell apart with a first sight is by their horn.
Hornworms are not visible during the day, but they hide among your plant’s foliage. They are green in color, which is the color of the foliage, making them blend in well.
