Hello my fellow gardeners, recently I’ve discovered some culprits in my zucchini plans, some little green worms that put out what I think are eggs and devoured the flowers and leaves. I would like to know what these menaces are and how can I get rid of them. I don’t like to see my plants suffering, please send in your thoughts! Thank you:)

That is a looper caterpillar. Those black things in the first picture are not eggs, it is the feces of the worm. Spray the entire plant with a product with Bt (Bacillus thuringensis) as its active ingredient. Google Bacillus thuriengensis.
