Controlling Cabbage Moths

Q. I have cabbage moths.   do you have a solution for these?

A.  Cabbage moths are voracious eaters. 

  1. Get a butterfly net and catch the parents if possible.
  2. Inspect the under-side of leaves regularly.  When eggs are found rub them out. 
  3. If they hatch out you really need to rub the worms out quickly, and as often as needed. 
  4. If all else has failed (or you have failed to do the “all else”)  purchase and USE an insecticide that is for chewing insects.  Apply according to label directions.
