You might have noticed holes in butter lettuce and other plants this year. Looks like there are a lot of black cutworms.
These cutworms are different than the white ones with the black head that live underground and cut plants off at soil level. These cutworms act more like cabbage caterpillars but are not fussy as to vegetable. Most are on my butter lettuce but not other lettuces.
Bt (Bacillus Thuringienis) is best for caterpilars. I have Dipel Dust but there are many brands.
Another problem bug is Four Lined bugs. I read about these in the Strib and was like 'that is what is making holes in my basil and other seedlings' right in my greenhouse! I never knew of either of these bugs before this year.
