How do i control caterpillars on a crop of cabbage plants. They were planted about a month ago and were doing really well but have since being savaged by caterpillars. I don’t think these plants can be salvaged but if i plant another batch how do i protect them? They were planted outdoors and were protected by netting.
Caterpillars can be controlled by preventing egg laying, by picking the eggs and caterpillars off or by spraying with either a natural remedy or a chemical spray.
The natural remedy is based on a bacterium but this can be hard to source, Chemical sprays containing short life pyrethrins include: BugClear Gun! For Fruit and Veg and Py Spray Garden Insect Killer
