How to get rid of caterpillars eating my Azaelea bushes. (Update)
Posted by HeadBusta4LSU on 9/22 at 6:04 pm
My dwarf Azaeleas have been invaded by these a-holes. One bush is already eating down to the bark. Is there a product to kill these things. I've never seen one that looked like these

Should be many products to kill them. Sevin dust should do the trick. Head to a garden center or feed store they will have something.

I haven't tried anything, just stumbled upon a bush that had no leaves and found my whole landscape is infected I have 15 bushes and each one has a few

While I don't know for sure. I would say 99.99% no.

I would say anything with bifenthrin as the main ingredient will wipe them out.

Red headed Azaelea caterpillar. They are harmless to you but will wipe out plants. Seven or carbaryl should knock them out. The one in your pic is fairly far along in its life cycle so you may need a little extra juice to take them out.

Appreciate the info. Going to swing by a garden place on the way home and grab something. Over night they cleaned another one out

Just an update for everyone. I went to a nursery and this is what they suggested I use. The guy claimed it replaced 7 dust which I'm not sure is true or not. Anyways, worked like a charm. Had caterpillars coming out the woodwork and dying a slow pain ful death. Even murdered some wasp that I didn't even know I had until they crawled out and croaked.

Put a bird feeder with sunflower seeds in it

Wasp spray did the trick for me. My azaleas were covered with these damn things a few weeks ago
