The worms attacking your crops are "corn boring Army worms" 

A company called "Trece Incorporated" manufactures traps that kill the moths that lay the eggs that end up worms in your flowers.

I don't have a problem with them, but plenty of people do.  You have to put the traps out early in the year, like March, April, May when it's warm and not raining... follow the directions...


Additionally, the moths are are attracted to outdoor lights, however, people that do not have outdoor lights get them too.

I've never seen anything like this, but it makes sense. It seems as though, wherever there is life, plant life in this example, there's always a predator. :-/

hi everyone

use this natural method to remove harmful bugs in the garden.Never use chemical pesticides because not all garden bugs are harmful pests.Chemicals cannot differentiate between beneficial insects, helpful spiders, and harmful bugs, and they will kill all of them.So use natural way to get rid of harmful bugs.Use soap, such as baby shampoo or another gentle variety, and add one teaspoon for every eight-ounces of water. Spray the mixture on garden fruits and veggies except for lettuce, cabbage, and other similar produce that could absorb the flavor of the soap.Keeping the garden clean by removing areas to hide is one of the best natural ways to control garden pests.
