Fun Fact: It has now been discovered that plants if attached by predators, can send an SOS message to the environment. For example tomato’s frequently get attacked by beet armyworm, a greenish 1-inch-long caterpillar that feeds on tomato leaves and fruit. When attacked by the caterpillar tomato plant sends out an SOS message in the form of chemicals. Wasps which is a natural enemy of these caterpillars can easily smell those compounds through their antennae and and come to the rescue of the plant by finding and eating these caterpillars.
