Q.Caterpillar Problem

Zone North Port, Florida 34286 | Karen King added on May 11, 2020 | Answered

I have an alamanda vine that has orange caterpillars on it with tufts of black hairs all over. If they are going to become a beautiful butterfly I will leave them alone. If not how do I get rid of them.
