Is there a bug or something else that will eat worms? Green worms are eating my plants.

The green worms ate my cabbage and my collard greens. Just found a post that something called BT, which is not toxic, kills them. I didn't use it yet but I intend on buying some and keeping them for the next time I try to plant cabbage.

when i was little, but big enough to know better, i picked the caterpillars off of my mom's tomato plants & put them on the neighbor's tomato plants, hehehe... i got to hear the hollerin' when the caterpillars were discovered *LLLL*

boric acid will dry them out & probably not harm anything. or just pick them off. if they are tiny, that could take a long time. of course, you can smash them or relocate them.... where ever you wish.

I use Bt on my tomato plants and also on my petunias. It works great!
