Will Monterey Fruit Tree & Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench control green horned tomato worms?

I may have gone a little light on the product to water ratio given how small the plants are. The most damage is to my purple heirloom. HELP!!! Can I put more on, very diluted?


The Monterey Fruit Tree & Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench is a great product, however it is not labeled to control Tomato hornworm so we do not think a follow up application will help you in this case. Hornworms are normally going to be controlled with a foliar application, not a soil drench, because of how they feed. You would see better results spraying with a product like Hi Yield Thuricide  which you would use at the rate of 1.5 ounces per 3 gallons of water and it can be applied all the way up to day of  harvest.
