So, I've noticed a recent uprise of caterpillars in my pots. Today I killed 3, yesterday I found 2. It's been like that for over a month now.

How can I get rid of them pesky worms?

Help is much appreciated and needed.

there are many chemical insecticides which are cheap and effective but from what you've said theres not a big problem with numbers, you could try neem oil or any other organic pesticide which imo are for more pleasing to use

Bacillus thuringiensis... biological control rather than a pesticide... it's a bacteria that effects soft bodied grubs like caterpillars. Here it's available under the brand names Dipel and found in all garden type outlets. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

Thanks for the info, I'm gonna look for the B. Thuringiensis. There's a place that has that Dipel stuff, I didn't knew what it was for at the time I saw it, but now I know xD. It sure is expensive though.

That neem oil stuff is impossible to find around here (chemical pesticides are king down here in Latin America)
