Q.Worms in Radishes

Anonymous added on May 15, 2012 | Answered

What can I use to keep worms out of my radishes, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, etc. ? We used to get a powder to put in row before putting in radish seed. Radishes are the thing I am mainly concerned with, but might plant cabbage and I will plant spinach.

It sounds like what you have is a root maggot problem. There are many species of root maggots so their color may vary from one to another. However, their taste for root crops, like radishes, cabbage, etc., is the same.
