fwmosher said:I finally after all these years, learned the correct name of the insect that we used to call "cutworms" as kids and which I referred to in my previous post. Here it is:We used to call your "cutworms" wireworms. I suppose because they're hard and look like a piece of wire. I don't think they're harmful in the garden. Cutworms, on the other hand, are named for what they do in the garden: cut off young plants. They were especially destructive in my garden this spring.
a Millipede! And there was another insect, and I forget what we called it, NO I just remembered, ear wigglers, actually Centipedes but it was more reddish and very fast, and I just learned that those were Centipedes! Only ever noticed the Millipedes in my sawdust laden gardens. Cheers!
