Airplane Plants Taking Over Flower Bed

Moved into a house with established beds. The airplane plants were probably once border but now choak out everything I put in the bed. Is there an easy way to get rid of some of them without having to dig up every one. I have a LOT.

Unfortunately, unless you use a wholesale herbicide, which will also kill any other plants in the bad, your only option is to hand dig or pull them. You can make going a little easier by making sure the bed is well watered before you do so. This will loosen teh soil and make digging or pulling easier and faster.

Small black caterpillar that has green sides is eating away at my plant. It’s an indoor plant. How can I get rid of them?

Remove by hand as many of these catapillers that you can.
Spray the plant with Neem Oil.
I would isolate the plant from others.
Retreat in a week incase there are eggs on the plant.
