Our peaceful garden has turned into a major war zone. The garden has been invaded by several variety of caterpillars and army worms. We are determined to annihilate them! In a very short time they have managed to destroy the lettuce and breakdown and eat the onion tops. Many of the leaves on the potato vines look like Battenberg lace.We are fighting back with an arsenal of lady bugs,wasps, and one on one attacks. Each morning and evening my husband and I hand pluck the enemy from the foliage. Just this morning we removed over 300 caterpillars. Hopefully in the morning more wasps and ladybugs will have hatched, for I prefer to be picking peas than caterpillars!
