That was quick!

These two sites are awesome!

Bob Moul's caterpillar gallery

University of Georgia bug identification page


Apparently, I have this dude:

Cross-striped Cabbageworm (Evergestis rimosalis): The adult moth is small and yellowish-brown. The larvae are green and have numerous black transverse bands across the body.

So it turns into a moth. Why am I more readily able to think about killing moths than butterflies? I ask you.

I don't think I'm going to be able to grow any brassica without a reemay cover/ hoop house. Maybe that's why I haven't gotten around to planting any brassicas in the last 2 years.
