Jo Anne,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I would suggest you try sprays of B.t. (Dipel, Thuricide, Ortho Bio Worm Killer, etc.) on the foliage of the plants they are eating. It is effective and very low toxicity to people and pets.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
