I didn't find ANY tomato horn worms this year. Which is sad, because my chickens love them

Already have fall tomatoes starting to turn red.
I am totally dumbfounded by the tomatoes this year. Here it is October and I'm still picking 5-6 a day. The leaves at the bottoms of the plants are turning yellow, and I have cut off all of the blossoms, but they continue to ripen and we are remaining in the high 40s-mid 50s at night so no threat of frost yet. I will normally be pulling them up in early-mid September. Everything else has finished, picked the last cucumber last week.
