Default Any Idea What These Evil Worms Are?

My best friend has a massive garden up in Humboldt County and this pest has completely ravaged her cabbages. It is not the Cabbage Looper.

She said the plants are completely infested and they drop off the plant in bunches like something out of a horror movie. Any idea?

I'm sure it's a brassica worm of some kind. I've seen something similar in an Atlanta garden. Give BT a try.

Millipedes live primarily outdoors in soil and decaying vegetation where they typically feed on decomposing plant material.

I have no idea what kind of worm that is But I would say hit them with seven dust or liquid and watch them drop
