I cannot find that species on any of your native caterpillar charts or lists. I am not sure, exactly, which that is.
The absolute best way will be to use biological means. The bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis will make short work of the caterpillars. It is harmless to mammals.
You could try Diatomaceous Earth, as well. It is just crushed up fossilized aquatic plants. It works wonders to shred the bodies of caterpillars as they walk over your plants.
