    Some pictures of the cabage moth. I am constantly chasing and eliminating these creatures. They lay eggs on cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and broccoli, and possibly turnip. They lay numerous eggs and the larvae eat holes in the produce. At one time there are only four or five in the garden, and they are hard to catch. Very nasty creatures to have around for a vegetable grower! I tried to take pictures on the produce, and finally got two partial pictures of the moth on the peppers, and I don't think they lay eggs on this plant. Probably just resting.

    When this moth appears steps must be taken to get rid of them, or many vegetables will be ruined. I have also seen them without the black on their wings, almost pure white.
