I have green 'loop' caterpillars stripping the leaves from my otherwise healthly mint plant. I have tried vege dust which seems to have had no effect. I have also tried removing the caterpillars by hand (about 5-6 a day) but more seem to appear the next day. I have now noticed cocoons under some leaves so am removing these as well. I give the plant liquid fertiliser fortnightly. Can you offer any suggestions as to how to get rid of them please?
