I have been trying to deal with this for several weeks. Every time I search the internet, nothing comes up that resembles the problem I am having!
On my Eggplant plant, a small, probably a centimeter in length, white worm has started to appear and form a kind of sticky spider web which ends up closing the leaf and then wilting it off. I have not tried to spray anything on it since I don't know what it is or what will get it off. I usually pick them off, but now there is one in probably 1 out of 4 leaves.
Does anyone know what this worm is and what will work to keep it away? I'd prefer not to use any harmful pesticides.
Thank you so much for your help!
