Cabbage Maggot



Description: The maggot is 1/3″ long, white, legless, with

blunt rear end. Injury is almost entirely underground

where maggots attack the roots of cole crops (broccoli,

cabbage, etc.), making slimy tunnels in larger roots.

Damage is worst when weather is cool and soil is moist.

First signs of injury: foliage discolors and wilts during

the heat of day.

Solution: Apply

Grub-Away Nematodes at transplanting

time, about 50,000 per transplant. Super-Light Insect Barriers provide

an excellent shield from maggots by keeping adult flies

from laying eggs on plants.
