The Q&A Archives: getting rid of worms on my marigolds
Question: I planted marigolds about 3 weeks ago and small tan colored worms have eaten them up. What can I do to get rid of these pests without killing the rest of my annuals and perinneals that I have planted.
Answer: You can control caterpillars with a product called Bt (Dipel or Thuricide). Bt is a botanical which controls caterpillars but does not harm insects, people or pets. Good luck with your garde!
