caterpillars

Visited the spot to water the girls. They looking good :thisbig: but.... there was a lot of black caterpillars on the nettles very close. I bagged up and moved the ones I could. A few fell. The ones I couldn’t reach with our disturbing i snipped the nettles they were on and flinged them with sheers further in to nettle patch (away from plants) thought this may buy me some time. 

So is there any thing to deter them or get rid of them? I saw what they did to the nettles and got me worried

I had them in my nettle plot but they didn’t touch my plants for some reason, I just snipped the nettles and launched them. All was good after that

I had caterpillars on bushes surrounding my girls earlier in the year. I had to chop the bushes down and move them away, about 50 meters away. This was a while ago. I did find a tiny one last visit but i dont think its related
