Answer: Hi Jaine,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Caterpillars can be effectively controlled by Nature’s Way Dipel Caterpillar Killer. Please check below link for more information.—-dipel/#5emOhQuLRjswUUDH.97

To improve the overall health and increase flower production you can feed the tree regularly with Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food.

Hope this information is helpful, if you have further queries do let us know.
