Hi we have many caterpillars and they have decimated the plants. I have tried pumpkin and they were not even slightly interested. I am feeding them on telegraph cucumber and they are thriving. We have had over ten caterpillars make crysalis’s after feeding on cucmber for over a week. They tend to eat the skin first and then the white flesh. If the cucumber runs out, there is a mass evacuation from the plant so we have to keep a watch. Going through a large telegraph cucumber a day.
We have over 50 chrysalis’s at present that we can see, there are others on bushes that we have not found.
