Southern Pink Moth in Portland, Oregon
I saw a question answered by Bill Gerth on this site regarding the Southern Pink Moth now possibly having infiltrated Oregon. I have had several different kinds of salvias in my garden for years, and this year I noticed that the flower buds are all being eaten by tiny caterpillars and a lot of little pink moths flying around. I have identified the caterpillar and moth as the Southern Pink Moth with some online research. It has only eaten my salvias, nothing else. It's devastating since I planted all the salvias for the hummingbirds. I've sprayed BT without success. Is there anything one can do that is not harmful to pollinators to get rid of this moth?
