Cabbage Bugs

Anonymous added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

We found some little bugs, like ants. Is there something you can get to get rid of them? The spray we had did not do any good.

Are you sure thay didn't look more like small flies? They are most likely cabbage root flies, which lay their eggs and the larva feed on the plants. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/cabbage/control-cabbage-maggot.htm
