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.
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.
