worms on boston ferns
What can I do to get rid of worms on my Boston ferns? They are not little inch worms. They are a good bit larger, black dark brown and green in color. Read somewhere that they might be hatched larva from moths. How do I get rid of them?
Bacillus thuringiensus is a product that will kill caterpillars and nothing else. Read more here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/using-bacillus-thuringiensis.htm
But are you sure you need to kill them? Are they eating your Boston ferns? They may be waiting to become beautiful butterflies! You can find out what they are by taking one to the local Extension Service, who will tell you if you need to be worried about them.
