Bug Attack !!!

Kailan being infested with caterpillar eggs, and some outbreak has occur as photos below.


Eggs spill over onto hydroton at few places. 
Note : One of the reader comment that this is caterpillar poo, I think he is right.


Below new eggs and this Kailan leaves already 90% eaten.

The culprits, looks like it happened overnight something lay their eggs during the night. Next morning plenty everywhere.

These are fish food, I hand picked and feed them to Tilapia.


These Kailan are spared, not touch. It is located in between two growbed that affected. Could it be because its beside that Kesum herb on the left. I know plants like Merigold are good insect repellant, this plant could be one too.


I will need to try and plant this Kesum plant, at few places and see whether any effect on caterpillar or bugs. Till today these Kailan is untouched.

    1. Hi Alvin

      Kangkong not a problem, that Kailab was badly infested so I had to pulled them all out. But from circles of fb Aquaponics Malaya, those that do Kailan had no problem. I am trying again another round of Kailan.
