Help - caterpillars are killing our swan plant!
By the time I removed the mesh, the plant had doubled in size and - to my surprise - there was already a fat caterpillar there.
Not long after that caterpillar went through its cycle and left the nest, about a billion tiny new caterpillars appeared! (More like about 20 - but still a lot).
And now they have devastated our plant. I tried laying bits of pumpkin about because my hairdresser say they liked it, but that's had very little effect.
I just hope they'll hurry up and make like a chrysalis already, before every single leave is chomped.
