Question: how do I control caterpillars that eat oleanders?

Answer: Cyndi,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Use a spray containing B.t. on the foliage and repeat it twice at 1 week intervals. This is a natural product that is very safe and works great on caterpillars.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
