    They are cannibals

    These damn bud borers/ bud worms /caterpillars are starting to do some real damage. Before sunrise I find most of them. 2 kinds so far. A green caterpillar thing and an inch worm. Most of the inch worms I find already dead sucked dry by something while in bud. The green ones I find inside and out. They are much bigger and are caterpillar like. When I pick them off buds I can feel them chewing on my fingers. I put them in a glass jar with lid on tight. The next morning there is always just one remaining. They must be carnivorous. I find many of these sucked dry or partially eaten also. Something is helping me out. Next year I am going to get on Arbico moth program in July and Aug.

    I found a tiny tiny worm in a top bud with a brown spot yesterday. Went to pull out the brown came very easy then disected the inside an there it was i mean it was thin as pencil lead same color. Not green worms in mine this year. So something tiny moth layed into these plant during the night. Got me kinda bothered cause it's raining an they are under a carport it's darker but good air flow. It's only on the sticky icky peanut butter breath which could be done in less than 2wks. i'm not gonna wait for as much amber as i would like if i get more rot do to enviornments. She's all cloudy but wanted her to fill out more. She should not be racy which i hate but could be not as potent as i wanted.

        Opinion on BT? I've put a couple of applications on mine, and the few worms I've found have been discolored and dying. Last years, I didn't see worms until just before harvest. This year, I started spotting them in August.
