Positive Negative

Caterpillars will eventually form Butterflies or Moths. Whether or not it is a pest is up to the individual gardener, but I haven't met many gardener who don't like Butterflies in their garden. Some plants are host plants for the caterpillars of certain Butterflies or Moths, and you must put up with them feeding if you want the benefits of their winged adults flying around. Otherwise just picking off the caterpillar would make more sense than spraying an entire plant just for one individual caterpillar.
