I have no idea what the worm might be but if it were my plant I'd pull out the BT. I have squash plants & melon plants that have splits in the main stem close to the ground. It does not seem to bother them.

On another note how are your "racing" beans coming along? I found a pack of them at my favorite garden store so I planted them right away.

hi Margarita Very Happy the racing beans are doing great.....so well that someone is nibbling on their leaves a little bit..... Laughing they are starting to climb the corn Very Happy thank you for remembering and asking (((hugs)))

my hubby thinks the worm is a horse hair worm Shocked .....its a parasite to grasshoppers and such but wont hurt the veggies or humans.....it sure is an ugly thing though!
