Caterpillars on vanilla

Oh no, more caterpillars? Oh yes, they were caught in the act of eating the leaves of this vanilla plant on the back porch of the Bosque reception center. You can see that this small army is about to finish off one whole leaf. This same type of caterpillar was also responsible for eating on other orchids some weeks ago.

a sprinkle of Cinnamon (canela em po) on the leaves of the orchid plant discourages ants, maybe also catapilars (?).
