Caterpillar attack!

San Diego, CA

I found that inside every petunia flower in my backyard, there lived a caterpillar! After I removed the flower with the dweller inside it and throw them in trash can, and the next day, there is more caterpillars in the new flowers and buds. In the last few days I have been diligently removing caterpillars, but they can still show up.

Could someone show me a more effective way to remove them. I know that they will turn into beautiful butterflies, but before they change, my garden will be gone first. There is a canyon outside my garden filled with plants, why can't they just go chew on those plants?!
