    Good Morn everyone....these catepillars are covering my elephant ears and doing a bit of damage. Need to find out what they are before I 'kill' them. Thanks in advance.

    Check the back of the elephant ears to see if its the caterpillar thats eating them or if the caterpillar is feeding on mites or aphids that are doing the damage !

    Hi All. @mart and @toni, it is the caterpillar doing the damage. I am told it is called a webworm and should be disappearing soon.
