Eggplant Pest

vraff added on August 3, 2015 | Answered

I discovered a pest I had never seen before on my eggplant this morning. It does not fit the description of any pests I have found at wesites. It is a larva-like thing - a short fat worm, greyish in color - that was eating my eggplant leaves. When I picked it off, it rolled itself into a ball. The shell was pretty hard but a lot of juice when I squished it.
