Agree...cabbage worms. Those little white butterflies (moths actually) lay eggs on cabbage family crops. the eggs hatch and turn into hungry caterpillars!! http://www.colostate.edu/Depts/CoopExt/4DMG/images/cabworm2.jpg

Nope, just find them and squish them. Maybe cover the cabbages with tulle. There are several back threads about cabbage worms. You can find them using the search feature on the left of your screen.

When I grew BS, when the plants were small enough I kept them under a hoop of tulle. After that it was daily inspections, search and destroy.
