  • How can I get rid of wireworms in my garden?

    Created by Kate Rossetto on

    Wireworms & pill bug control

    New for me this year are the two listed insects above. I have used some essential oil soil drenches to no avail. The are chewing on roots of my newly transplanted cauliflower and my direct seeded beans.

    You can cut a potato in half stick and small stick through it, and bury it in the place where you last saw them for about an inch. Have caught some this way, but I am nematoding the area during winter.
