The white worm you are talking about are called Grubs. I'm not sure how to get rid of them, but at least now you have the name to start researching.

Pick them off & mash them with your shoe & spray them with malathion, you can get it from Lowe's or garden center. It's good to keep almost all insects out of a veggie garden & flowers, good luck.

I have found tiny white worms living inside my cherry tomatoes. The tomato looks perfect from the outside, but when you cut it in half you can see it moving around in all of my tomatoes. I haven't noticed them until yesterday so I have been eating these things, what are they? Are they harmful? And how do I get rid of these things? I am so grossed out. Please help!
