Combatting Garden Caterpilar: Essential Tips for Bangkok Gardeners

Have you ever noticed your healthy seedlings mysteriously severed at the stem, seemingly overnight? If so, you might be dealing with , a common pest in Bangkok gardens that can devastate young plants in no time. Understanding and managing these pests is crucial for maintaining a healthy garden.

Understanding Caterpillar

Caterpillar are the larvae of night-flying moths, typically attacking plants like broccoli, kale, and cauliflower by cutting through the stems at or below ground level. These pests are most destructive early in the gardening season when they emerge from overwintering. They are nocturnal, feeding at night and hiding under soil during the day.

Identifying and Assessing Damage

To identify caterpillar, inspect your garden at dusk. Look for caterpillars around the base of your plants; they can appear in various colors and patterns, often curling up when disturbed. Damage is usually evident when plants are cut near the soil surface, with entire rows of seedlings potentially destroyed overnight.

Preventative Strategies

Prevention is key to controlling caterpillar. Start by cleaning up your garden to remove debris and weeds that provide shelter for larvae. Turning the soil in the fall can expose overwintering larvae to predators. Consider planting later in the season when caterpillar are less active, and use barriers like cardboard collars around new transplants to physically block the larvae.

Natural and Chemical Control Methods

If caterpillar are already present, several control options can help:

  • Natural Predators: Encourage birds in your garden, as they are natural predators of caterpillar.
  • Manual Removal: Handpick caterpillar after dark, especially after rainy weather which brings them to the surface.
  • Insecticides: For severe infestations, environmentally friendly options like diatomaceous earth or Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) can be effective. In extreme cases, chemical pesticides may be necessary but should be used as a last resort and applied carefully according to instructions.


caterpillar can be a serious threat to your garden, but with the right knowledge and tools, you can protect your plants and enjoy a thriving garden. Implementing a combination of preventative measures and active interventions will help you keep these pesky larvae at bay.
