Each year we get a plague of caterpillars on our geraniums...they look like thin little black or green things...think they develope into white butterflies...

they absolutely massacre everything and it is dreadful...can pick a few off but too many plants  And too many thinking of changing my plants this year and trying something else..

have had this plague for the last two years...anyone got any ideas???
