Thank you for contacting Yates.

To control caterpillars, try ‘Yates Nature's Way Caterpillar Killer - Dipel’. This product controls a wide range of leaf eating caterpillars and is safe to beneficial insects, birds and animals. Approved for use in organic gardening.
However, if all 6 plants are being demolished overnight, it's likely due to other pests such as Possums. We recommend using 'Yates Possum Repellent Spray'. Yates Possum Repellent Spray is an effective spray, when applied to plant foliage,  deters possums from feeding on your precious plants!

Hope this helps and please do not hesitate to contact us again should you have any other query. 
Happy gardening.
