Tomatoes attract a number of insects that eat both the plant and the fruit. Horn worms, mites, leaf miners, flea beetles and slugs eat the leaves of the tomato plant. Tomato fruit worms, melon flies and horn worms feed on the tomato. Stalk borers and cut worms eat through the stems and stalks of the plant.
