Aquaponics – Infestation in snake gourd plant

Just found out an infestation on the snake gourd plant. I looked up on the Internet and it is a specific pest that attacks snake gourd called Semi Looper Caterpillar. There are a whole bunch of them on the plant.

I am going to try manual control initially and see how well I can manage.
