bouganvilla plant problem

Rachel69October 12, 2012

Please help, I have a problem with two bouganvilla plants. In the last couple days we have had some rain and noticed the issue in the photo below. Is this a bug problem or a fungus problem? Thanks for any and all help!!

Looks like bougainvillea looper caterpillar damage. They are sometimes referred to as inchworms; the moth is a dull browninsh color. The caterpillars eat under the cover of darkness, so can be tough to actually see during the day. Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) should control them.
