Name this caterpillar / caterpillar help

9 years ago

I finally caught the caterpillar that's been munching on my artichoke, Brussels sprouts, pak choi, and Chinese cabbage.

Here are pics of the leaf damage and here is the 1.5" long green caterpillar culprit. He had help from at least 5 other smaller friends.

Besides hand picking them off at night, what's my best defense against these nasty caterpillars.

These plants have only been in the ground (brand new raised bed) for a week or so and this caterpillar seems awfully big right now.
