I found these critters on my Dill plant this morning. They blended in with the plant seamlessly. Note, the above picture does not do this eating machine justice. He (or she) is bright yellow and green. Very vivid.
What the dark green spot on my hand? Yes, that is poop from the worm. He pooped while I was holding him.
So, what happened with them? I threw them in the bushes far, far away from my dill. Note, the dill is right by my cabbage plant as a companion plant to deter cabbage loppers. (BTW, the cabbage loopers were not dissuaded at all and ate some of my cabbage plant.)
These little buggers ate a lot of my dill plant. Help. What are these?
