Hi Angela,

A Yates product you might like to try is called Success Ultra. This product is effective on a range of caterpillars and will kill the pest both by contact and also ingestion. Ensure when spraying that you spray both on top and underneath the foliage. It is best to apply in the cool of the early morning or late evening. Spray at 7-14 day intervals until pest activity has ceased.
