Oh God our Cabbage @ night is being eaten up by worms. What can we do?
I am going to try to use Shaklee Basic H to spray on the Cabbage. But I like to hear from anyone out there what we can do naturally to solve this problem.
Thanks so much for all your help. My poor husband is going crazy over those worms. :evil:

One natural predator for caterpillars is the paper wasp. These are the wasps that build the nests under your eaves. Be sure you don't do anything to hurt them. They are very docile if you don't wave your arms around or swat at them.

Another organic solution is called BT worm killer. BT is a bacterium that gives caterpillars something like lockjaw so they cannot feed anymore.

A third solution is a bird bath, bird feeder, and/or a bird house strategically located in your garden.
