Tomato Hornworm/Five Spotted Hawkmoth Eggs

Manduca quinquemaculata


I was unable to take a picture of the moth in flight because it was too dark last night, but I was able to see it and ID it as 5spotted hawk moth. It sprinkled my tomato plants and possibly peppers (and a post) with these small green eggs.

Typically seen as a pest to nightshade plants, I’m not worried about them. My dogs have done more damage to my tomatoes than these guys will.
