My grandfather told me that they used to kill 'em by the truckload with DDT.

Shyt was good. Only problem was the kids being born with three arms.

My grandfather worked for the State Ag and we always had some around. Remember applying it liberally to dogs for flea control too.

Use a biological control that works on caterpillars. Bacillus thuringiensus LINK
Also works great on tomato hornworm and cabbage loopers.

The brand name is Dipel.
