Cabbage moths are so pretty...but I'll be darned if they're getting my food.
I've been picking off the occasional caterpillar and have found and brushed off what seem to be tiny eggs, doing it pretty religiously, yet they're destructive little varmints, aren't they?
I've read that various aromatics will repel them, so I gathered some wormwood from nearby. I wove the stalks/leaves through the cages I have around the cabbages, and laid more on top of the mulch. I've been watching this morning and the moths are fluttering right by without even landing, so I'm optimistic.
How long does the breeding season last? Any further suggestions? The cabbages are here and there throughout the beds, not in a row. Other than this, they are looking great.
