I found 5 cabbage worms on my Brussels sprouts this morning.

They made such a delightful green ooze when squished.

It reminded me of 'alien blood' from sci-fi flicks. Bright green, almost fluorescent! Not blue-green like Spock.

I wish I'd had my camera!

I was glad I was wearing gloves, LOL

Laughing I love the mental pix I got from your description of squishing those worms! I would have to have gloves on too! Very Happy

Happy gardening!

My new favorite color is definitely "inside of a caterpillar green" as I call it. I don't use gloves. I keep a pair of chop sticks in the garden so whenever I see a caterpillar I grab the chopsticks ( my assassin tools) and dispose of the pest. The hardest part is not making the villain like cackle (too loudly) after taking care of a caterpillar.

That's funny!

I use the thin carry out type chopsticks for getting my wigglers back where they belong. Are you using the the heavier plastic type to mushing cabbage worms with them?

The big sticks are too big for me (really strains the outside of my hands!). I'd hate to change my technique...I might squish a worm!

Actually right now I am using a small dowel about the diameter of a pencil that I cut in half and then sharpened the ends. The dowel is a bit clunky I will get a pair of those wooden chopsticks they give you with take out and start using those.

I found a big fat one moving away from my lettuces (3 boxes over) today.

Forgot DD wants to see this lovely green. Squished him quick!

I love nitrile gloves!
