caterpillar problem

ceaser asked 12 years ago

i have strawberry and redcurrent plants, alot of the leaves are folded over at the edges with what looks like silk. i examined a leave and a small bug which looks like a green caterpillar just under a cm in size was within the folded leaf. i took off a few of the affected leaves. what should i do with the rest?

These are tortrix moth caterpillars, and usually cause very little damage, not worth doing anything about.
