Sunflower Pests in Florida

Anonymous added on May 20, 2011 | Answered

My sunflowers, grown from seed, have small black worms eating the top leaves. What are they, and how can I treat the problem? I live in West Palm Beach, Florida. The plants are in pots, in full sun. Lately, we have been getting daily rain and I have moved the pots to a covered area to prevent them from drowning. Can I spray the leaves with a soap/water mix?
