Any ideas on how to get rid of cabbage moths from the veggie patch? Ours are currently over run with them, they’re eating everything even though we applied recommended dust…..it’s not working :/

  • Unfortunately you might have to spend time picking them off by hand if nothing else is working. There are some sprays at Bunnings I’ve seen but they may be Pyrethrum?

  • maybe ask a nursery for advice and they can recommend what to use. maybe even ask bunnings

  • There are so many creepy crawlies and insects everywhere at the minute! It is quite perplexing. Good Luck with your moth issue.

  • Thank you! We are desperate and will definitely give this a go

  • Pyrethrum spray works really well – and not nearly as toxic as alternatives. Mixed plantings also helps reduce the problems try things like marigolds.
