Here in San Diego, ca they show up only on tomato's. Even though I do a lot of gardening, last year was the first time I ever saw little ones. About 1 1/4ins long. I usually find the adults 3 1/2 to 4in long. hehehe They get squished here!
Thanks! They are actually elling them as live pet food along with crickets, mealworms and silk worms. I assume someone local is culturing them.

Cheers,
