These have a natural enemy. Can't think of their name, but if you see
white spots on the horn worms it is not necessary to remove the horn worm.
They have become host to a parasite that will kill them. I usually pick
them off until the white spots show. I break off the limb the worm is
feeding on and stomp worm leaf and all. None so far this year.
Probably the result of the hard freeze.
Wish there was a similar parasite for deer!
