anyone know any prevention? I thought I posted this put cant seem to find where, if I did Cabbage or turnip root fly Icon_redface

I lost all the turnips I had planted, they were getting to harvest size (three were) and when I went to pull them they were all munched through and it looked like a maze of tunnels inhabited by icky white creates, maggots.

so what the heck do I do? I want to plant more turnips and even rutabage but I am so nervous!

I am not certain, but I think for any underground stuff, beneficial nematodes are helpful. It may take a season though.

i feel your pain. Sad i have the same problem. they will attack your cabbage,turnip, colie, brocoli, sprouts and radish. the larvae may lay dorment in the ground till next spring and attack again. re plant as far away as possible. dig up the ground so the birds can eat some of them. burn or bag and bin the effected plants. i have yet to find a spray to kill them. they lay 3 times in the spring to autum.. maura

I would plant in a differnt box with new MM and cover with floating row cover to keep the flies out. You can keep those guys covered all season snice you don't need bees. That's my plan anyway.

Opps, this is kinda old, but I just decided against planting certain plants this year. No brassicas for us because the worms are just too crazy, even with picking picking picking and covering, spraying. I decided just not to waste the space and put in more tomatoes, peppers and stuff we like. Although I will miss the collard greens Sad
