the SFG journey-rain and pest

Post  has55 on 10/16/2018, 1:31 pm

we are having all day daily rain and it's forecast to the end of the month. how do those gardeners who live in raining area address cabbage loopers or cabbage worms in preventing them from eating holes in the leaves? May have snails but don't see trails. Actually, I don't see the worms, but the holes are slowly increasing.

I have not done this because of worms but I did the following because of too much spring rains on garlic.  What I did was to cover the top of the bed (not the sides) with hoops and plastic in a way that could be folded back on sunny days.  I had another bed that I covered the bed with tulle to keep out the worms and only the top with plastic to keep the rain off the crops.

This works if you have a lot of time to mess with the covers when rain is forecast.

Has,  You are familiar with my frames and bridal tulle for my winter crops.  ??  Well, I cover with full or or just roof sized plastic sheeting, depending on if I need freeze or excess rain protection.  The tulle stays in place all winter except for harvesting. These are from 2014 so don't try to figure out where you are looking. Very Happy

Ok, Now I have a better understanding. Thank you. I did find some cabbage worm on search and destroy recon. I will spray tomorrow. I have something else attacking it. can't tell if it's flea beetles or aphids. Nothing moving even when I poke it.
