Something is eating my clivias

Hi all

I have an urgent problem! Something is eating my clivias and they are falling at seriously fast rate. I noticed tracks like a leaf-borer in my clivias a year ago already but the plants were healthy so I left them. Now they have gotten a stronghold in one plant and are spreading from there.

There are soft green balls of what looks like plant material and lots of little white caterpillars (I think). What are they and how do I stop them?
