The Q&A Archives: Cut Worms

Question: I think I have cut worms that are eating my flowers from under ground. What can I use to kill them. I had junipers here before and have had this problem since I planted flowers.

Answer: Sevin (carbaryl) 5% bait may be used and should be sprinkled on the soil surface at the rate of one pound per 100 square feet. You can also use liquid or dust applications of either Sevin or Diazinon. Other insecticides labeled for cutworms such as Tempo can also be used, but only for plants listed on the label. The active ingredient in Tempo is also available in Bayer Advanced Garden Multi-Insect Killer. When using insecticide, mix and apply according to label directions. Be sure to read and understand all label directions before using any pesticides.
