Insects in Geranium

My geraniums have a worm that hatches and eats leaves and buds. It is green, and I think the eggs are from a moth.

You might have either beet armyworms, tobacco budworms, or plume moths, three pests that can attack geraniums. All can have green larvae, and all develop into moths. Here is more information about these pests:
