Hey everyone, I have, and have always had, a lot of caterpillars that come and eat my brassicas. I used to mono-crop, but now I've been inter-planting. I've got broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, mustard, native wildflower, rhubarb, sweet potato and marigolds. Obviously my garden eco system isn't balanced yet, because I've got an excess of one species (caterpillars) without the predator species (birds) to keep numbers balanced. I will never ever use pesticide, not even 'natural' ones, so that is totally out of the question. I've lost one plant to caterpillars, and they are starting on the others (mainly the cauliflower and brocolli). I know that without using pesticides there is no 'quick fix' for this, but is there anything else I can do? It's somewhat disheartening to see the plants I've raised with love and care, get destroyed. I don't mind the caterpillars having a bit of a nibble, (everyone has to eat) but they end up taking the whole plant!
