Cabbage White Butterfly Free Garden Printable
We're trying a new technique this year! Cabbage butterflies lay the eggs that turn into the green caterpillars that destroy your cole crops. These butterflies are highly territorial. We are testing this theory by placing some faux cabbage white butterflies in our brassicas bed to see if the real ones are deterred and we can avoid netting this bed to keep them off our plants.
I have made a printable if you want to test it out with us! We printed out the cabbage butterflies, laminated them with packing tape and then hot glued to wooden skewers. Since they are territorial you shouldn't need very many. We placed 2 in a 4'x8' garden bed.
