Getting Rid of Caterpillars

Warm, humid weather has finally arrived. Today we found a bunch of caterpillars on our front porch crawling into a bucket and all over the floor. We removed the bucket, but now what? How do we keep them away? How do we rid of them? Is there any home remedy or safe way, as we have pets?

Hi, This is probably just one group that hatched at the same time, and once you put them outside, you probably won't have anymore coming around. Carefully scoop up the ones you found on a piece of flat cardboard or a dustpan. Gently put them in the backyard on a plant leaf that is not one of your expensive plants. They should go about their business and in a few weeks will make a cocoon and form either moths or butterflies. Hope this helps.
