Caterpillars on strawberry leaves! Help! leaves on strawberries were curling and when I looked there was a caterpillar inside on the leaf with a sort of "web" round it - what can I use to get rid of them and what are they? All the insecticides I've got are only for ornamentals



Cut off the leaves if there are too many cocoon caterpillars. It is only April and they will grow more or use one of those kitchen wet wipes or a baby wipe and pick off the critters by hand. To be honest, caterpillars are quite benign on Strawberries - vine weevil larvae are the real pest.
