    I saw a wasp despatching a caterpillar the other day, or rather I didn't stick around to watch (too squeamish). Three cheers for wasps! Until they become a pest themselves, that is.

      Large white caterpillars have stripped the nasturtiums bare at home (where all my brassicas are netted). Interestingly there are far fewer on the nasturtiums at the allotment, where the next door plot has unprotected swede plants that are starting to resemble lace.

        I have only lost a plant or two.
        A bird feeder brings in the small birds and they have taken most of the caterpillars.
        Any affected leaves have been put in the hen run where the caterpillars get squabbled over before the leaf itself gets finished off.
