Unsure yet of what these grubs/catapillars are from/become but omg they're getting greedy! they eat whole leaves stripping the stem except one leaf to wrap themselves up in to avoid the heat hours it seems (I'm down south) I use no sprays or insect pesticides, I do try and use predetory insects and hand to bug combat...I'm a bada** w/ my electric raquet lol but does anyone know what these are? They relentless, at least 3 a day off every plant (12 plants total)

* that white bug in pic was actually in the pest collection container I use and not found on the beans. Those white bugs did attack my Salvia flowers...but for another thread.
