The bougainvillea looper can do big damage fast. Unless your bonsai bougie looks like this don’t worry, be happy!
This is a yard tree that gets hammered every late summer here in 10b. A treatment of spinosad or BT and all is well…..:)
A pruning also fixes things!

They eat a lot but don't really seem to do all that much long term damage. They live on.
