Caterpillars … yum yum!

Why on earth we chose an Oleander shrub to be inserted into our front privacy hedge is beyond me.

Each time when the plant looks healthily green and budding those pesty Oleander Caterpillars appear. Clusters of their eggs hatch at the same time and they just devour that plant as if they’re at an “all-you-can-eat” buffet. I guess the smart birds somehow know that they are poisonous and do not include them in their diet ~ so they continue disfiguring the plant.

Poisonous creatures eating poisonous plant.

This time I actually kept checking to see if my gardening assistant would come to help out and after 2 days, (s)he did!

Yum yum ...

Yum yum …

Yes, Ma Nature is taking care of/balancing this cycle of life.  So you see, Wasps are not bad pests, they serve a purpose and that is why I don’t spray to kill them.

They tasted good, I guess.

Now to wait and see what comes to eat the Wasps.
