Organic farmers are looking for non-chemical methods to rid their crops of pests. Giving crops a slight electric shock has no ill effect on crops but rids them of caterpillars. This method should be employed by organic farmers all over the country.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly supports the view that it would not be advisable to try to eradicate agricultural pests with the method mentioned above?

(A) Most species of caterpillar are subject to some natural predators.

(B) Many agricultural pests do not go through a caterpillar stage.

(C) This method also kills insects that are agriculturally beneficial.

(D) Since caterpillars of different species appear at different times of the year, several shocks would be necessary.

(E) No large-scale production facilities exist today for the product that electrifies crops.

(B) and (C) seem to be most related. I agree with (B).

What is the source of this question? I doubt if any GMAT question would have it's choices so close. I can't seem, to decide between B and C.
They both seem right

B.

C is out of scope as it is refering to 'insects' and not pests.
