A: Sounds like it could be the tomato horn worm. To get rid of them, find a product that contains BT, which will not harm beneficial insects or birds that eat the worms. If any of the caterpillars appear to have white raised rice spots on them, leave those alone. These rice spots indicate parasitic wasps' larvae, which are good guys.
