You can physically remove the green worms. Just pick them off the plants as you see them. Or, you can mix together neem oil, dish soap and water. Mix 1 ounce of neem oil in 1 gallon of water, and add a drop of liquid dish soap as a wetting agent. Besides spraying vegetables that green worms infest, it can be used on spices and herbs, small fruits and berries, stone fruits and tropical fruits. This mixture is safe to re-apply once a week if necessary.
