How to get rid of caterpillars on tomatoes?

Tell me, please, if anyone knows how to get rid of the caterpillars (most likely this is a scoop). I would not like to use chemical preparations ...

If they have already appeared, then, unfortunately, there is already little that can be done, since chemicals cannot be used, or it is impossible to apply but not eat tomatoes for twenty days, or to manually collect new clutches that can be found on the underside of the leaves, but this is laborious and not always effective, and also use biologics.

For the future, some recommend planting marigolds in tomato plantings, their smell scares away butterflies, which lay eggs, from which caterpillars then appear, it is also worth spraying tomatoes with a chemical at least once before flowering, or already during flowering and deliver the fruits to spray with biological products from pests.
