How To Control Cabbage Moth and Worms Organically

You see them flitting around your garden and you think oh those white butterflies are kind of pretty. My little grand daughter likes to chase them and is always disappointed when she doesn’t catch them. I am just disappointed to see them.

They are not cute white butterflies, they are the dreaded cabbage moth and they lay eggs on your garden and the next thing you know you have an army of little green caterpillars chowing their way through your cabbage, kale, broccoli and other related garden plants. In this article you will see how to control them. There are ways to control or at least keep the number ogf them down enough so that you too get to eat some of your kale and cabbage.

There are different methods to try such as picking the caterpillars off (you can feed them to your chickens), use rw covers to keep the moth from laying eggs on your garden or you can use Bt Pesticide which is a safe organic pest treatment for catepillars and hornworms that doesn’t harm other beneficial insects.
