Do they really eat that much river? They look like they would grow into pretty butterflies.
I loves me a fuzzy spider, but I hate cateruglybuggers.
Oh, er, River's a savage one under there lol !
frogpondsrock; an individual caterpillar probably wouldn't do too much damage, (especially if I spotted him in time), but these pesky buggers appear by the dozens out of nowhere. I'm not sure what they grow into, there's never any butterflies around here. AJ; they're funny to watch when they're crawling across footpaths etc on their way to something green. They're quite speedy.Jayne; you should see what I do to snails....
Oh... such a sad ending!
Never mess with the killer instincts of a gardner.
I used to get green ones all over my mint, and when you squash them they smell minty! They ate it down to stalks while I was on holiday - thank goodness mint is tough cos I relied on it for mojitos.
Kath; for the plants or the caterpillar?JahTeh; yep that's me, raging river.Toni; I didn't think anything ate mint.
