Cute and cuddly, aarrgh!
Many of us will be planting soon and I can't think of a bigger letdown than coming out in the morning to see many of my healthy seedlings cut off at ground level. They add insult to injury by not even eating most of the plant. They just eat around the stem and crawl away. The buggers!
I know many of the solutions such as collars of all sorts, Bacillus Thuringiensis (BT) on and around the plant, parasitic nematodes, light tilling, etc. but does anyone have something else that works?
Cutworms, vine borers and squash bugs are on the top of my list for being a pain in the .... garden. Aphids and flea beetles follow those up closely, so if you have some organic solutions to any of these, I would love to read them.
