Problem Solver > Ornamentals > Caterpillars

Munch! Munch! Munch! You’re familiar with the damage. You look to enjoy your garden and admire your favourite plants and discover leaves are missing or ridden with holes. Who’s the culprit? Quite often it’s caterpillars.

These soft-bodied insects are the larval form of butterflies and moths. An adult butterfly or moth mates and selects a host plant on which to deposit its eggs. Once hatches, the larva emerges and feeds on its host plant leaving holes or “windows” in the leaves and ragged edges along the leaf margins. They then stop feeding and search for a place to pupate, later to emerge from their cocoons as winged adults.

Symptoms-
Holes or “windows” chewed in leaves or fruit. The holes are usually in irregular patterns. Black or brown droppings on plants can also be a sign of the presence of caterpillars.
