I found several of these eating my Castor Bean Plants. They have been leaving huge holes in the leaves. Also on my Angel & Devil Trumpets & Glads & several other plants. As much as they are suppose to be good luck ... I did want to kill them all ... but he hubby caught them and took them on a road trip down the street.
