Yesterday I found a black w/ yellow stripes (one on each side) caterpillar on a tomato plant leaf. Today I found another. Picture included. What is the name of my visitor and what is the best method to discourage visits from his/her buddies?

Disregard - It is a Yellowstriped Armyworm, Spodoptera Ornithosalli caterpillar. I went to my County Extension Office and they knew it right away.
