What's eating my tomato?


I just found something eating one of my tomatoes. There are holes in the green tomato with what look like small pale worms or larva in some of the holes.


What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Hi CyndiL :D

Derris dust is an organic caterpillar killer. Whatever they are it will kill them. Crops can be eaten the day after use. It needs to be applied when there is no rain. Looks awful though, like you have thrown talcum powder all over them.
