No doubt that it's a White Lined Sphinx moth. They're 1 of many sphinxes, probably the most common. Those arm sized tomato worms are the larvae of another sphinx that's much larger, also called a hornworm moth. All of them are called Hummingbird or Hawk moths.

Tomato worm moth, as wide as your hand:

I'm not sure what they're called around here but they're huge and sound exactly like a hummingbird. Real cool insect. You definitely notice them.

I’m not an Ento, but I’ve had to learn thousands of bugs for several exams and certifications for WDO and GRC licensing.

The wife is a master license holder/pest control operator.

We have to not only identify insects, but also their turds, their frass, their drill holes, their nests, etc, etc.

We rarely get hummingbirds here, but most years a bunch of these are mistaken for birds...

I know you've got pHD in something Slummy

Now that is truly disgusting. Don't they make an industrial grade pesticide that kills everything on the planet so you don't have to know all this schist? (side effects include peeling skin, hair loss, vomiting, diarrhea, etc)

Speaking of excrement, maybe an honorary degree in Scatology?
