Capsicum have one inch dark green caterpillars invasion

Can I spray and what with PLEASE. ? They have changed the leaves into net curtains overnight        must be panicking put wrong face. C r I k e y.     done it again¡¡!¡


I would try hand picking them off and daily inspections. 

Thanks dove have done this ,I just wondered if there was an organic spray I could've mix ed  up or buy. I have sprayed with soapy water this morning too .


Once they get to that size, even nasty chemical sprays are pretty useless, let alone organic ones.  Hand picking and vigilance are your only effective weapon. 

I have put them outside in there big pots ,thought maybe this heavy rain we are having will knock any remaining ones off !

I am at a loss as to how and where I have got them from  this must be the fourth year I have bought  them from jersy plants .never had caterpillars on capsicum before .I did wonder if it's the cabbage white butterfly ,.


I am a supplier of fresh and quality capsicum's at a good reasonable prize.

For more details you can mail me on

Thanks & Regards,

Joel Rodrigues.
