Q.What is a safe and effective method to get rid of diamond back moths on Russian kale?
I think this is a diamondback moth eating our Russian kale. The kale is the only thing it has attacked. I saw it land on the mint leaf but it didn’t stay. I am in the US Northeastern zone.
Can you recommend an organic treatment? I read the plants could be covered with a net to keep pests out. What is the easiest and best method?
I was going to remove the damaged leaves.
I have added some pictures taken today.
