This is really disgusting. First, the hornworm itself is really impressively cool - its body looks like it is braided. The white spots are eggs that a wasp laid on the hornworm. The eggs will hatch and the babies will eat the hornworm and any more that are around. So, we didn't kill the poor worm - we left it to die a much more gruesome death. Take that as a lesson - don't screw with our tomatoes!
