They’re back! A few weeks ago we posted a picture of the adult version of this beast and warned you of the coming feast! Well here they are, aptly named as the black and yellow caterpillars leave but a skeleton of the leaf on the grape vine when they’re done! If you have grapes then you probably have or will have this critter soon. Fortunately there are a couple of very safe controls for them. B.T. has been around for years and works very well and Spinosad has also become very popular with folks wanting to stay organic!
