fall GARDEN doom! green WormS
I have green worms eating my collards and kale. I picked them off and noticed eggs. I tried to get the eggs off. How can I battle these green eaters without chemicals?

You can try 1 part lemon dish soap mixed with 10 parts water. Spray both sides of leaves and stems.

Chickens or some other kind of insect predator. Attracting birds, lizards & frogs to your garden is a great way to go too.

Diatomaceous earth sprinkled or rubbed over the eggs may help too.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6069405


Take out the green worms 1 by 1. Unproot your plants and wash them thoroughly, discard the old soil and renew paying attention to washing the jars. If you don't have jars and your plants are directy planted on earth, after you unproot them remove 5 to 10cms of soil. This is the only way to remove these filthy beasts and their eggs without using chemicals.
We did use chemicals to eradicate these vermins but I undestand you doing it the natural way.
Deal with them asap or they're going to kill all your plants in a matter of days. I remember those nasty worms were hiding underneath the leafs.

Chickens will eat the veggies and diatomaceous earth takes a week or better to start working not only that but has to be dry to work.So go with the Borax laundry soap.I'm telling you it works and is all natural, you can sprinkle it or mix a couple of teaspoons in hot water and spray it on the plants, it can even touch the veggies and it don't hurt you if you eat it.I'm old timie, I know some things.

I used to see Wasps patrol my Roses and pluck those off every day.

The neighbors found a large wasp nest in their grill and killed them... now I have to deal with those little 'Rose Slugs' (same things, though they're called 'slugs', they have legs-ish)

Daily patrol if you have flowers, so's not to kill bees...

Re: fall GARDEN doom! green WormS
Thanks for all the suggestions.

This one is rather extensive. I did not realize what a pest these worms are.

There's no way borax or whatever hippie bullshit you're using would kill those worms. You probably don't know shit about gardening if you're so scared of uprooting a plant.

I could not even kill them as I removed them. I thought they would be a good meal for the birds and dropped them across the yard by a birdfeeder.

Re: fall GARDEN doom! green WormS
You could try borax. I personally haven't dealt with the green worms of doom. My aunt has but I know she uses chemicals. If 7dust won't kill plants I would imagine Borax is probably going to be okay. Wash it well after harvesting obviously.

Vinegar can be handy and it might be worth a shot to try. Just spray it on. You can also try removing the leaves if you're able to that have the eggs on them. It won't eliminate the problem, but might help it go a bit faster.

I wonder how long they will stick around? I know I did not get all the eggs. I think they turn to white butterflies.

You make good sense. You're right, the chickens would love those luscious greens. You say you're an old-timer and that borax is the way to go eh? I'm going to have to look into that. Thanks!

You old timers do know a thing or two that none of us, (my generation), cared to listen to while growing up... Now I'm making it a point to gather all I can from the past generations. Combine some of the good-ole-ways with some of the new ways, permaculture and beyond... And you can actually achieve real sustainability.

Celebrating oldtimers with good tips on ridding garden from green worm doom. I will check out borax. I hate the idea of losing my kale. I love kale.

That's a good site, it's funny old farmers do have big strong hands,man you should have seen my grandpas hands they were as big as a diner plate and strong, he could grab two bales of hay with one hand and do it all day long but back in those days you had to do damn near every thing by hand.I was twenty working side by side with him and he would out work me.
