Damn caterpillars.
    #11343204 - 10/29/09 03:20 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Tiny little buggers are NOM-NOM-ing on my HBWR.

I mashed all I could find but I think theyve killed two of the smaller plants.

I'm going chemical postal on them today, If it says "kills bastardin' caterpillars" on the tin its getting sprayed on in inappropriate doses.

It could be worse. A woman could cut off your penis while you're sleeping and toss it out the window of a moving car.

chemicals are not the way.  caterpillars will ALWAYS be attracted to your hbwr, in fact they are attracted to MANY species of morning glory including all the common active ones, so it will be in vain and you will just be making your plants a chemical mess that i for one wouldn't want to live around, never mind eat from.

If your growing outside, the plants will grow so incredibly huge and fast, even a massive caterpillar invasion wont really harm a lot of your plants....i have been realizing this more and more, and found that leaving them (killing what i see) and letting the plant go nuts is just as good, and everything is healthier!  you also wont be killing/fucking up good bugs/animals in the process which despite how many caterpillars you think you have, without the other critters it would easily be 100X that.


but if you really like fast short lived success and lots of poisons around, by all means :smile:

Anyways your point is very well taken anout a chemical soup.

The plants are indoors and are less then a year old and growing Slowly. They are MASSACERING them at the moment. I will be doing daily mash the bastards searches until they ar eall DEAD. Goddammit.

There's a Safer brand Catarpillar killer, contains Bacillius Thuringiensis bacteria.

Controls leaf-eating caterpillars like Tent Caterpillars, Gypsy Moth Larvae, Budworms, Bagworms, Spanworms, spring and fall Canker worms, Imported Cabbage Worms, Cabbage Loopers, Tomato Hornworms, Tent Caterpillars, Webworms. Caterpillars stop feeding shortly after eating foliage sprayed with Caterpillar Killer and die within a few days. Does not harm honey bees, beneficial arthropods or earthworms. Remember that all butterflies and moths are caterpillars first and this product will kill beautiful butterflies as well as seemingly unwelcome pests. Be sure there is no alternative before spraying..
