Caterpillar: 2 views

A fresh crop of corn earworms is making its presence known on my geraniums. They always pick on this one particular clump of geraniums (pelargoniums, that is) which is a good thing since I don't really like these salmon-colored ones so much.

We had unusually hot weather in November which may have encouraged their hatching and growth; then this past week it's been quite a bit colder with wicked drying winds. Will these soft-bodied fair weather fiends survive the bitter 50 degree nigh
ts? Time, and the number of holes in the geranium leaves, will tell.
