Notes:

We discovered these lacy leaves on our tomato plant. On closer inspection we found 1/2 inch worms on the underside. We also found a few larger worms more in the one inch range. We were wondering what is the best way to eliminate them.

Thanks for your help!

    Maybe the Southern armyworm (Spodoptera eridania)? Check out the included link below and see if you have a match. The link also provides control methods. Best wishes!
