Any Bt spray (Bacillus thuringensis) is death on any caterpillars. I don't know if it is available in stores in the UK or not but you can get it through Amazon

Thanks Chuck....I have ordered this, its quite hard to get hold of. Hopefully will sort out the problem.
It will. They will stop feeding immediately and be dead within 12 hours. It is the BEST caterpillar killer on the market, anywhere.
