OK that's it. No more Mr. Nice Guy.
This is a "cabbage looper".

They call it a "looper" because it only has "feet" on the front of it's body and on the back. It moves along by humping it's back and scooting it's back "feet" up close to it's front "feet". It "loops" up it's body.













This is what it has done to our brussells sprouts.



This is MAXIMUM STRENGTH cabbage looper killer.


I'll let you know who wins.




On a happier note, we have some pretty flowers in the front:























And we have a tomato coming!



YAY!!! We should be overrun with veggies soon!

Yuk to the bug. Hope you get them all.......
We loved your pictures - flowers are beautiful. You DO have a green thumb.
We survived the 116 degree temps on the 4th. Supposed to be 113 today, then cool off a couple of degrees.
Hurrah for the first tomatoes.
How's the tomato tree?
