[tomato] Hornworm

I'm pretty sure I've got a hornworm munching on one of my tomato plants.
All the leaves have been eaten leaving empty stems.  Another sign I saw were
little green deposits on the ground and on some leaves that look remarkably
like corn on the cob, but about the size of a pencil eraser.

I looked for it throughout the plant, but to no avail.  Where do they go
during the daytime?  Do they only munch during the evening hours?
