Q: Hi Dave!
In late summer/early fall I purchased a grow light and brought a few of my favorite chile plants indoors to keep producing during the winter. They’re doing well, but the largest, a Red Savina, has a cabbage looper problem. They seem to think it’s summertime, and want to continue their life cycle. I’ve only been able to find two of the loopers, but more are lurking. Any suggestions?
A: Hello Karl:
Basically, there are two solutions: remove by hand or apply Bacillus thuringiensis, an organic pesticide which disrupts their gut and causes them to starve to death.
