I'm in Sydney, Australia. I live in an apartment 3 stories off the ground floor.
My chilli plants are in pots on my balcony.
Recently (last 2 weeks) I have noticed that something is eating the leaves of one of the chilli plants. I have not done any sleuthing at night yet. Today is a Saturday and I have not seen any further damage during the day.
The pot with the most damage looks to be surrounded by droppings of the culprit. What could it be?
Update: I went out in the evening with a torch and yep, it was 2 fat caterpillars. I thought I had checked the plant during the day, but I guess I wasn't thorough enough. I checked a few more times during the night and no more turned up. A lot of damage for just 2 caterpillars!
