I've noticed the past week or two that some pepper plant leaves were getting munched, and fat caterpillar frass on the leaves. But I couldn't find the caterpillar. Its coloring so cryptic! I finally discovered it yesterday- but didn't squish or give to my kid to play with. Because it was already dotted with wasp eggs, so I know this caterpillar will die and host baby wasps to eat other caterpillars next year.
