A few years back, our turnips were covered in them, and "doing the dirty". Got the hand held vacuum with the long skinny attachment, and sucked up hundreds of them. Day two, found a few more, Day three, couldn't find ANY! Never had a prob again. Those suckers run FAST; and this worked great.
I'm sure the neighbors thought I was crazy vacuuming my plants, but fast and organic control!!

SG, how'd you get them out of the vacuum without them getting away? My Dustbuster doesn't have a bag in it.

+1, First stuff some paper towel or something in the nozzle to keep them from crawling out.
