How do I get rid of tomato worms?

To keep tomato horn worms off my tomatoes, I plant marigolds next to them. I plant tomatoes in groups of four with two to three marigolds in between them. In twenty plus years of gardening, I have only had three horn worms I had to remove.

Here are some good tips on ThriftyFun. Just follow this link.
here, I grow a spare tomato plant just FOR the hornworms.... see, I like the moths....the hummingbird moth....
when I find one, I pick it off and put it on the 'spare' tomato plant... and then I get to watch the moths enjoy my flowers.....
I use peppermint flavoring mixed with water.They can't stand the smell.
