This year I have had 3 long caterpillars. About 1.5 inch long. Not sure if these are going to turn into butterflies or not?
One was on a rose bush and one was on a geranium.
It was thin and 1.5 to 2 inches long.
Could you give us a photo, because 1.5 to 2 inches long is mighty long for a thin caterpillar?
Caterpillars can get quite large, when I returned from my jollies last year you would have thought the caterpillars had been on stroids they were so big
What are stroids?-I have noticed today that the edit function is not working
Don't all caterpillars turn into butterflies or moths?
they could also turn into sawfly
colour would help
Could be sawfly-did not think of that
On a side note- as gardeners we are encouraged to tempt butterflies into the garden-the dilemma is they all start of as caterpillars- so a slight bit of foot shooting going on there.
What to do?
