Yes absolutely. You need something with spinosad in it. I use Monterey BT + spinosad.

I don't grow outdoor in the summer because of the caterpillars. I've lost way way too many plants to those disgusting buggers.

There’s this anti caterpillar spray at Lowe’s that worked for me! Then grasshoppers came like some level 2 wave and I can’t seem to shake , thanks for the suggestion I’ve gotta try it

How are we to easily harass you without it?

Another option is netting. I know it's not pretty to look at, but works.

Caterpillars are hard because they come and go. Spinosad takes a bit to work and they have to have eaten it. Do you have any large female mantis around? I keep around every plant area outside. They are brutal but can only do so much.

They might be, my neighbors have a huge garden of herbs and veggies that attract a ton of bugs and then they come over and attack my two small plants I may just bring inside

Can't beat the sun for light.

I ended up having a PVC skeleton frame with mosquito netting top and all sides that I would set down over my herb garden mid to late summer.
