Answer: Collards, like cabbages, are prone to aphids, cabbage loopers, and cabbage worms. Cabbage worms and loopers actually eat holes in the collard leaves as well as in cabbage heads. Loopers are the larva stage of the small white moths that frequently appear in the garden. You can hand pick these pests or use Bt (bacillus thuringensis) sold as Dipel and Thuricide. Best wishes with your collard greens.
