a huge caterpillar,
No interactions present.
We had 5 of them on a hardy fuchsia a week ago but today one was seen heading over the patio. Not sure what to do as it is getting colder and it has not gone into soil to pupate since we gave it a chance to do so. It preferred to get back on to patio. Should we over winter one on a ventilated box of soil?
I the mean time we have returned it to the fuchsia.
