|I noticed holes in the plumbago plants and I see worms, 1 inch long, striped with a red head on the leaves. What can I do to get rid of these? Thanks

|Caterpillars can be the larvae of butterflies or of moths. In Florida, plumbago is the host plant of the Cassius Blue Butterfly. I wouldn't recommend controlling them. Your plumbago will survive the attack and a whole new generation of butterflies will flourish! Hope you'll allow them to live.
