#1: Hairy Grubs on Herbs

Posted on 2006-07-11 07:46:57 by Kev

Hairy grubs (possibly white cedar moth larvae?) have eaten almost all
of my mint plant.

Can anyone suggest a non-pesticide solution to this problem?

Bacillus thuringiensis, sold as Dipel is a bacterium that is fatal to
grubs, caterpillers and apparently termites but is harmless to humans.

Kev,

Mint shoots away again pretty quickly, why not just cut it back to ground
level so the grubs have nothing to eat - most moth larvae are very seasonal
so breaking the cycle with this generation should fix the problem - until
next year :-) Alternatively, not many grubs like white oil - make your own
with vegetable oil, detergent and water - ABC Gardening website had the
recipe.

Cheers,
Geoff
