  • Who's done this?

    I found this on one of the red cabbage leaves. Any idea? It's the only one ( if that helps).

    Secondly while I'm here. Are these little moths trouble? I seem to have a distant memory that they are. I've got loads of them around the brassicas.

            Are they diamondback moths,check the backs of the leaves & the leaf edges where they fold for singular yellow eggs,maybe three per leaf,unlike the cabbage whites that leave clusters of eggs.

              yup diamondback moth I think. Very destructive little blighters that are quite resistant to pesticides.

              There was one I found which relied on the caterpillar still eating a bit of the leaves and it somehow turns off the caterpillars appetite, it doesn't eat and it just dies
              Are y'oroight booy?

                If you don't want to use synthetic chemicals, neem oil works well for moths but you've got to keep spraying them.

                Too late now but maybe mesh or gauze over the seedlings for next year.

                I think some kid poked your cabbage leaf :-)

                  Bird stabbed the hole with its beak while going for a moth or a caterpillar?
