Spraying

Hi can anyone tell me how many times a month I need to spray my Boxhedge
I have been picking the caterpillars off but  last year they nearly killed my whole Hedge! I sprayed 2 was ago and found  few caterpillars today!

    Just give up on them...do you need all this chemical warfare every year? You need to treat them at least twice a season. Xentari,s which is a well regarded treatment suggests  three treatments are needed https://topbuxus.com/gb/content/31-buxusrups-onder-controle-houden

    The problem won't go away...just replace them with another genus  and be happy, not worth the stress. I replaced them with small leaves euonym
