I have some tomato plants in a planter on the deck.  I 
noticed 2 caterpillars on them.  They are large (about 2 
inches long) green with white sacks attached all over 
their bodies.  I noticed black droppings on the deck 
under these bugs.  The plant is producing plenty of 
fruit but seem a little wilted but I think that is more 
a factor of water (they dry out quickly in the planters) 
I have one plant out in the yard that apparently does 
not have any of these pests on there yet and it is doing 
fine.  Anyone know what these are?  Can I just kill them 
and be done with it or are more steps needed?
