    Default Caterpillars on tomato leaves!

    I have holey tomato leaves. Tiny little green caterpillars on the underside. This is a new one for me - anyone know what they are please.

    That's about as much as I could find too, RL. So far, they're just on one plant so I've removed all the holey leaves and moved it out of the GH into the garden. Fingers crossed that no more of the little munchers find the toms

    Thanks Mothhawk I always value your expert opinion
    So three of us believe the pests are caterpillars - I think we may be onto something
