Today we are dealing with little caterpillars. Please skip this if you are uncomfortable for killing caterpillars.
One of the serious pest problems in vegetable garden is caterpillar. It happens several times a year. They propagate fast, spread widely and develop resistance to pesticide easily. For back yard gardening, we want to use minimum or no pesticide. Then what can we do to control caterpillar problem?
OMG I'm scared to touch caterpillar .
Have you tried BT?? Bacillus thuringiensis It is organic and very effective
Thx for sharing.
Your garden is so beautiful and productive. Powdery mildew kills my squash plants before caterpillars can invade. Thanks for the information.
Is ur garden here in Fl I live in kissimmee
Good idea! Physical method is far better than chemical method for human and the environment.
I heard brewing compost tea and spraying them helps. I tried compost tea on my tomatoes, and it effectively got rid of the Horn Worms without using BT Spray. They've attacked my ENTIRE garden, including baby longan tree!
I pop the smaller caterpillars and pick off the larger ones to feed to my chickens. The chickens love them and it gives them extra protein. I also make sure to remove and crush any eggs that I find.
I must try the formula of blending the caterpillar with pumpkin leaves to get rid of those slugs and snails, I might blend slugs and cabbage leaves together….thanks for sharing, Regine!
Good info ,l liked your garden arrangements very much ,I'm planning for it for my garden
