I finally caught him in the act! This little worm of a worm was responsible for decimating one of my night
blooming jasmine plants, and it is starting in on another. It eats holes in the leaves and scatters black
waste crumbs. I suspect it has been munching on my loquat too, but the evidence is only circumstantial. I
sprayed my jasmine with a strong spray of water and followed up with a weak palmolive solution spray.
But I still found the worm, happily munching. Any advice for removing this worm? Naturally, I'd like to
stay away from poisons that kill beneficials along with the bad guys. I enlarged the picture, sorry if it's
not crystal clear. Worm is about 3/4" long.
