A Little Flashy

This little guy and about 10 others were on one of my plants in my wild and unkempt flower bed (my next project).

With a little help from Google I found out that it is a Euchaetez egle/ Milkweed Tiger Moth Caterplliar.

What Now!?

Gardening is a great learning experience, exciting to watching as the seeds begin to grow and form identifible vegetables, and it has been a very relaxing time for me.

With all the YouTube videos I watched and reading I did, I did not pay to attention to the negative things that could happen in any garden.

You already know about the gopher/groundhog well now I have caterpillars that are eating up my cabbage.

I had a total of 11 caterpillars on my cabbage leaves. Another Sugar Honey Ice Tea moment. Needless to say I did some quick reading and bought some BT (Bacillus thuringiensis) fromAmazon that will be here tomorrow.

I will be pruning off all the leaves that have been eaten and hope the rest will be ok once I apply the BT.

Do any of you Gardners out there recommend any natural way of ridding the garden of these pesky pest?

Last Blooms-2

Here are a couple more photos of the flowers and plant still blooming or full of life.

The first 2 images is a Split Leaf Philodendron. This one does not have any blooms but it caught my eye because it was full of Caterpillars. When I purchased this plant the leaves were beautiful but now the leaves are food.

 

 

This Rose Bush looks terrible but the bud is beautiful and I know that the actual bloom will be amazing.

Garden Visitors

It seems that some of the caterpillars are loving my new flowerbeds. I hope these are the ones that turn into butterflies.

Do all caterpillars turn into butterflies?
