Need Help with Basil Plant

Hi guys, rainy season now and my basil plant is constantly under attack by caterpillars. It's very hard to spot them and remove them one by one on the plant. Also don't want to use insecticide as I use the basil for cooking. Any suggestions?

    Hi Lisa, it seems like you either have to cover your basil plants with an insect net / flywire to prevent the butterflies from laying eggs on them. Else I read that buying some human friendly pesticide: Bacillus thuringiensis More info here: http://www.bt.ucsd.edu/
