My organic lemon basil is infested with these worms which build a cocoon in the basil leaves, eat the leaves and leave black droppings. Is this an immature horn worm (that have destoyed my tomato plants)? How do they get in the plant? How does a gardener control them other than cutting off the leaves? Any natural predators?
