Under siege by caterpillars!
Hey there, so this is our first Spring in our new house and I have come across a problem in the backyard which borders the woods. There is some type of caterpillar out there in the thousands!
Seriously, at any given moment there are maybe 10-30+ caterpillars on each of the decorative plants out there. We have a waterfall and there are maybe 300 dead ones under the water. If you look up, you can see that all of the trees have had their lower leaves just destroyed. They are on every surface, the ground, the trees, all plants, rocks, everywhere!
What can we do about this!! I posted a pic of the culprits on an azalea that they have nearly killed.
