Caterpillars on passion vine

10 years ago

I have tons on caterpillars on my passion fruit vines. They are decimating them. They are only attacking the "incense" variety and not my "Frederick."

I know they are going to turn into butterflies but I want them off. I have been picking them off with a stick, but hours later, many more turn up. It's the story of the very hungry caterpillar right here at my house. They start out really small and they get huge. I wonder if birds will eat them because I put them in the dry birdbath so the birds can have a snack.

My favorite passion vine is going to get wiped out by these. If you have a good solution, I would like to know.
