Been battling hornworms recently and finally I think it's under control but these bottom branches are yellowing and looking quite bad, should I trim them? Also added a photo of the first tomato growing on it, my first time growing anything and I'm very proud of myself haha reddit.com/gallery/sx2klk

What to do about tomato hornworms in my compost?

I have a 4x4x4 compost pile of mostly oak leaves and kitchen scraps, though last fall I did put all my dead tomato plants into it. They’d done great over the summer, and weren’t infested with hornworms as far as I knew.

But today my pile had dropped to 100 F so I was turning it, and gradually I turned up at least a couple dozen of what look like translucent white tomato hornworms. I imagine if they were eating actual tomato greenery they’d have their usual green color too.

What can I do to save this compost? I don’t really want to spread it over this year’s budding veggies if it’s full of those voracious buggers.

In my back yard I found a tomato hornworm that is now host to a parasitic wasp called braconid wasp. It lays eggs in the worm and transmits a virus to prevent the worms immune system from rejecting the eggs.

What naturally prevents hornworms from eating tomato plants?

I was told about nematodes, but not sure which ones are the best for this (if at all). My boyfriend's mom started a garden and is terrified of any type of caterpillar lol. She let her tomato plants die because she saw hornworms so I wanted to get her something for Christmas to repel them.

Thank you!
