How To Kill Cabbage Worms

How To Kill Cabbage Worms

There's been many methods described on how to kill cabbage worms. Some of them work OK and some of them leave you wondering how in the world that's supposed to kill cabbage worms. The most effective method in getting rid of cabbage worms is to use a product called Bt. Bt is short for Bacillus thuringiensis. Try saying that a few times and I think you'll find out why it was shortened for simplicity sake. Bt is a soil bacterium sold under many brand names such as Dipel, Javelin, & Leptox, just to name a few. It is a stomach poison that works very well for killing larvae such as cabbage worms. As an added benefit, the spores of Bt are released into the soil from decomposing dead insects after they have been killed by it. So if you have a problem with cabbage worms in your garden try picking up a bag of Bt from your local garden center and use it to kill those bothersome cabbage worms.
