Let's talk cutworms. Talk what! It's that time of year.Posted Thursday, March 5, 2009, at 8:46 PM
Cute and cuddly, aarrgh!
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.
