Aquaponics - Biological caterpillar warfare

My bialogical attack on my caterpillar problem is about to begin.

Pulling caterpillars from my tomato vines, and feeding them to the patrolling fish below was fun for a few days, but now I find myself spending all day hunting and searching for my little green eating machines.

There is an organic, and best of all fish safe solution provided by nature. It comes in the form of a bacteria called "Bacillus thuringiensis" and is sold under the name Dipel.

From everything I've read, it seems like a good idea, so I'm off to buy some and try biological pest control.
