They blend in so well that we found most of them in the morning after the feeding frenzy when there was no plant left. My neighbor told me to try dusting the plants with flour. They don't like it very much. The only other thing you can do is to examine each plant daily and pick them off.

Oh - I just now saw this! I found a Walnut Sphinx moth on my kitchen window yesterday - couldn't get a great pic but I got this:



I don't know why it's so blue! But, he was a beautiful creature, and I believe he arrived this year for the milk thistle, which I understand they are fond of.
