Bug eating my parsley (Better pic)

Posted a message yesterday about these bugs eating my parsley. I have a nice microscope pic of it. Looks like a pillbug or something. Seems small for that (~4mm long). What is it and how can I get rid of them?

Good image, thanks.

It's a fly larva. Probably called a stem borer. But can't locate any info about it.

Perhaps your county's Extension Service Office can help.

If you get answer, please let us know what it is.

I wanted to add that it generally works best when you post new info and/or images with your original thread.

That way, people can follow the sequence easier.

Some damn bug has been chewing my 3 parsley plants. I planed them last week (5/23). They were fine in the 6 pk but after I planted theme in the herb garden they were nibbled on! This wasn't a problem last summer in tthe same location, in fact I've never had a problem w/ parsley being eaten.
