Two Very Hungry Caterpillars

I was wondering how one little green pea-coloured caterpillar can make so much damage in a container, but that was until I looked into the container this morning and spotted it's slightly larger soil-coloured friend!

The top of nearly every plantie is nibbled off (the youngest and juiciest bits), so they had to go... flinged them straight into my landlord's garden.

I haven't figured out what species they are yet (mostly because I am lazy), but I have realized that being friendly to them isn't going to work out. Maybe if I had a whole garden bed of pea plants, then I could tolerate a couple of them :)

Anyway, are there any caterpillar problems where you are? If so, what species and how do you deal with them?
