Nothing is worse then having beautiful Brussel sprouts, collard greens, or broccoli and only have them eaten by cabbageworms.
Having plants eaten by any type of bug is frustrating and it can be easy to want to jump to chemicals to get rid of them. Luckily there are some really easy natural ways to get rid of these bugs – especially cabbageworms:
Very hungry caterpillars are indeed a scourge of cabbages and related crops in the genusBrassica. In addition to the velvety pale green imported cabbageworm—offspring of those fluttering white butterflies—your sprouts and broccoli may also harbor striped green cabbage loopers, diamondback moth larvae (pale green and segmented with a light brown head), and cross-striped cabbageworms (chunky with a blue-gray back and a lengthwise yellow stripe on each side).
Have you dealt with cabbageworms before?
