I saw this beautiful bright green wonderful puffy section of one of my buds, the green was so beautiful and then I saw little ridges! And then I almost had to get a crane to remove it! Then after I put it to its rest, the next day first thing in the morning, one shows up again…so I thought…is the caterpillar now a ghost and it came back on an after life?
As I do a check several times per day, yesterday I was wondering why some of the buds were starting to die and fall off. I’ve actually had to walk around the Kush Mints plant, which is the only one that’s being effected, and pick all of the dead buds that the caterpillar got to, I have to harvest them. I’m extremely happy to harvest early, but I would more rather it be because they were completely ripe buds.
Whether it’s 6:30 at night, 5:30 in the morning, 7:30 in the morning, each time I check at dusk or dawn, there’s a caterpillar eating Kush Mints! I don’t know what to do, as I don’t use poisons or any toxins due to animals and the environment. The only thing that I could think of is just being the caterpillar babysitter. Maybe if I had a dog that could bark each time there was one on the branch, that would be a very good thing. So until I find a miracle, I’m faced with setting my clock and getting up to babysit caterpillars. Any ideas? Wonderful green and growing day today!
