I am starting to see an abundance of black caterpillars about 1 1/2 inches long. What are they?? Should I kill them?

Where are you seeing them? If on a plant, what kind? How many?
Can you send us a couple of clear digital photos of what you are seeing? You can attach the images right to this reply and we will try to help.
They do not need to be killed.
