Glassy cutworm. Now what?
We moved into a house with an established garden (woo-hoo!) and this is my first year trying my hand at it. I was turning in some compost when I found a few of these little 3/4" white caterpillar-type things with brownish-reddish heads. After much time spent on google, I found the picture. Glassy cutworms. What do I do now? Should I treat the garden? Avoid planting anything in that particular corner of the garden? Obviously, I need to collar all of my seedlings, but will that be sufficient? I don't want to be ruined before I even get started!
