Answer: Hi Marie,

It sounds like caterpillars are feeding on your herbs if the leaves have been eaten and there are holes in them.

An effective product to use is called Success Naturalyte Insect Control. This insecticide has activity by both contact and ingestion and will control a wide range of caterpillars in the garden. Spray your plants in the cool of the day, early morning or late evening. Spray the product at 7-14 day intervals or when pest are seen.
