Swallowtail caterpillars love my parsley plants, but they eat through the herbs too fast. Do you have any other suggestions on what to feed them?

Tom: You must be referring to the black swallowtail caterpillars. They really love parsley. Try planting a row of carrots. This will usually keep them from eating all the parsley. You can also try feeding them dill or fennel.
