Little Black Balls on my Bell Peppers and Oregano
Hi I've looked it up and people are saying it's caterpillar poop...and then I did notice tiny caterpillars on my plants (that are now full of holes) If so, how do I get rid of them??? I tried washing them off, but that didn't work. Also, one of my bell pepper plants is starting to have faint purple colours-- is that normal? Also, some of my parsley has white spots and looks almost dead. Any reason as to why/how? Below are pictures to illustrate my situation.

I think I spy a cutworm in one of your images.
The black specks are indeed the residue from these type of caterpillars.
