Hello, I I have just been in  my greenhouse to pick some tomatoes and I have discovered that something appears to be eating them! There were large holes in around 7 and it was both the ripe and un-riped tomatoes affected.   At first I thought it was a caterpillar but after being unable to find anything except for tsome weird looking “droppings” in red, orange and brown I’m inclined to think otherwise? Please help me as I don’t want it to get worse!

If you have found droppings it is a caterpillar.  They are masters of disguise.  Look under the leaves.  There may only be one.

Probably caterpillars of the tomato moth.
