Control Large Leaf Eating Worm on Lantana


connect.carolyn@gmail.com added on August 23, 2015 | Answered

How do I control large leaf eating worm on my lantana without endangering butterflies? Lots of butterflies are enjoying my lantana, but so has a very large "tomato" worm. I have removed the worm, but would like to know if there is a way I can control this in the future without endangering butterflies and hummingbirds who also stop by on occasion. Is Sevin safe in this application?
