Of course something eats kudzu! It is related to soybeans and snowpeas!

China at much of their kudzu in 1958-1961 during a famine where 30 million people died. There are 180,000 sites for recipes for human consumption on a Google search.

I love speaking about kudzu if you know a place that is interested please contact me. I take donations only, or I speak for free.

The velvetbean caterpillar (Glycine max), skeletonizes host plant leaves when in early instars. It's a pest of soybeans, and also is reported to eat kudzu.
