Cabbage Moth Eggs

Cabbage butterflies have been fluttering around. I don't have the heart to kill the moths. I just make sure they stay off my kale. My kale box is the only brassica that's unprotected at the moment. Every other day or so, I inspect the kale leaves for eggs. Aha, there they are. I usually just hand pick them off.

Those cabbage moths are hard to catch, even using a water hose. Better get some organic Bt.

Kelli-Those little guys are sneaky! You'd better check!

Veggie PAK-Haha, I've tried spraying them when I see them sneaking onto my greens. You're right, they're quick.
