Do these creatures munch on other veg as I have many things close by...?

To be honest, regards my problem I just can't see it being economically viable

spending £15 for a pack of nematodes just for one bush.


If, I dug the bush up and replanted elsewhere and covered with a net wouldn't this


In 2011/12 the bush had no protection and wasn't attacked.

My problem is, that I cannot get to the allotment everyday. The damage shown was done in one day!

I have probably over panicked as, I have pulled all the fruit off even though it's still not ripe.

 I thought if I'm not having it neither are them little bleeders!

I can do something with it I'm sure.

This is the second year running that my gooseberry bush is slowly being stripped clean of everything.

It has a plague of tiny caterpillars munching away.

I put the net on too late this year and last year I didn't use one at all.


How do I get rid of them?

I planted 20 of them last year in a sectioned off area of my plot as, I know they spread like wild fire.

No sooner than the shoots appear something is eating them!.

I protect them with plastic buckets with the bottoms cut off but something is still getting in there.

Any help appreciated
