Are these cabbage worm eggs

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 17:52

Spot on buddy boy...there are hundreds of them...they move onto all the bedding plants eventually and devour them....think i willl have to take as many leaves off the camelia as possible...even if it makes it look bald....i can prune back the eleagnus and then see whats what.....

thanks everyone i appreciate all the feedback....i recognise  the camelia caterpillars from last year all over the geraniums with there knives  and forks....

maybe i could put all the leaves in a wild spot further down the road and they can hatch there....

Does any one know what these are...there are loads of them under the camelia leaves .......each year there is an infestaion of cabbage worm in the garden i care for (i think they are cabbage worm..longish green type  caterpillars)...are these the eggs.....????


they are even under the eleagnus leaves.....i sprayed with detergent and water hoping it would lodge them off but nothing happened...if they are cabbage worm i want to nip them in the bud before they can do much damage......in fact whatever they are i am sure they need dealing with....any ideas?????

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 caterpillars...am thinking of changing my plants this year and trying something else..

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