I knew an elderly lady a long time ago that used panty hose to protect her cabbages from cabbage butterflies that laid their eggs and resulted in cabbage worms. My question is: have you heard of this, and if you did, when and how do you put the panty hose on?
Panty Hose for Protection

To prevent worms from burrowing into the heads, try placing the entire head in pantyhose or other suitable nylon stocking until ready for harvesting. This is often done when the worms/butterflies are most prevalent, in spring and summer.
