Another One Bites the Dust


This is the pupae of a tobacco hornworm. We found (and squashed) a handful of these in May.


This is a tobacco hornworm that apparently escaped being squashed in May. He didn't have the same luck tonight.

I always wondered what those things were tobacco horn worm huh?

I'll be killing them now(:

Is that what those are? I've dug a couple of them up in the flower beds while planting (and tossed them on the patio for the birds), but oddly haven't seen any hornworms.

I had assumed they were junebug larve, since they're similar colors.

Now i'm completely befuzzled! Do we get those tobacco whatsits in the UK too? I pulled something exactly like that out of my roots bed yesterday and binned it straightaway out of fear! How interesting!!
