Fat green or brown worms, up to 5 inches long with white diagonal side stripes, chew on the leaves. A red or black ''horn'' projects from the rear end. Black droppings are found on the leaves and the soil surface beneath the damaged foliage.
Hornworms can be picked off by hand effectively. Otherwise, apply an insecticide labeled for these pests, following label directions.
