The Q&A Archives: worms

Question: What can I do to get rid of worms eating the leaves and vegetables from my plants? Look all over the internet and the only thing I could find is pick them by hand and smash them some say soapy water, can you please help me.

Answer: If by "worms" you mean caterpillars, there's hope. Use the botanical insecticide called Bt (bacillus thuringensis) sold as Dipel. It targets caterpillars but doesn't bother beneficial insects.

Best wishes with your veggie garden!
