Goodbye tomato

Recently we covered our tomato plant with bird netting to prevent Eastern Lubbers from eating it. The net didn't keep the grasshopper out, but it did prevent it from leaving until I could find the big ugly thing and get rid of it. 
Our plant got down to business and grew a tomato. Just one, but it was getting bigger. Until today, when I discovered something else had gotten inside the netting. It's a big fat caterpillar with one horn and it's called, rather specifically, a Tomato Hookworm.
And boy, does it like tomato plants. The beast ate our  only tomato, then stripped the plant bare. What a little monster!
