I have these furry catterpillers eating my red cabbage and broad beans this year. I have never had them in the garden in the past and strangely I have no green caterpillers (cabbage moth) even though I have not used dipel or anything else.

I have been picking them off but the chooks don't even eat them. Will dipel control them or has someone got another solution?

If theyre causing damage I think I would dipel if you want to create a balance and have time and enough plants to survive the attack,grow some wasp attractors anything with a coriander type flower,parsley, carrot, parsnip,queen annnes lace
