Cabbage Worms


Anonymous added on May 26, 2011 | Answered

I have just noticed cabbage worms on my cabbage and broccoli, as well as their green eggs. I purchased Bacillus thuringiensis to spray; however, the liquid just seems to bead off of their leaves. Does it come in a powder form, or is their something I can add to help it actually stick to the leaves?

You could try using neem oil, which will stick to the foliage and help with the worm problem. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
