cabbage worms

Post  Weatherkid on 4/24/2010, 4:43 pm

I believe I have a problem with cabbage worms. It only occurs on my Bok Choi, but there are tons of little holes on the leaves. I went out to the garden early in the morning and saw dozens of little slug-like creatures. Any suggestions on how to stop them? So far I've used a solution of hot sauce and water which seems to be starting to work, although I don't know if it's good for the plant itself. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The strange thing is that the worms haven't touched any of the other cabbage. weird.

this is a website that aids in identification, and what to do once they have moved in. Good luck!

I looked at the picture of cabbage worms and what I have aren't anything like those. What I have look like really miniature slugs. They chew out tons of little holes. Thanks for your help though.

Are you sure they aren't slugs? There are some that are pretty tiny.

Here's a link to some ideas for slug control:

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/luminance/rgaa/Slugs.htm

I have one cabbage plant out of nine in my SFG box that has holes in its leaves. The others are just fine. I can never see anything on the plants, and figured whatever it is, is munching at night. I never thought it might be slugs that are buggin' me, but thanks for a heads-up on that possibility.

I think I'll try some of the ideas on this site, too.
