Grazers G3 is a great Cabbage White Butterfly, Caterpillar and Aphid Deterrent. It will stop these pesky creatures from eating your plants, without harming them. They just don't like the taste.
How do I spot the signs of damage?
It’s easy to tell that your plants, particularly cabbages and other brassicas, have been attacked by these creatures as their leaves will be full of holes. If left unchecked, they will eat the whole plants.
Aphids also damage plants causing flowers and fruit to become distorted or deformed. Some species cause galls, or growths, to form on roots or leaves. They may transmit viruses between plants and often excrete a sticky substance on which sooty moulds can grow.
How can I stop this?
Grazers G3 Cabbage White, Caterpillar and Aphid Deterrent is simple to apply using a spray to ensure even coverage. It lasts for six weeks and is harmless to people, animals and the environment. It’s safe to eat salad crops, fruit and vegetables that have been sprayed with Grazers G3, but we recommend waiting a week before so doing as the solution can have a slight effect on the taste.
How does Grazers G3 work?
It makes the plants unpalatable to cabbage white butterflies, caterpillar and aphids. This means they’re less likely to attack the foliage. It also strengthens the plant and stimulates growth, so it helps the plant to look after itself.
Why is it better than chemical pest control products?
It’s a natural product that is harmless to people and wildlife.
Is there anything else I can do to tackle this problem?
Grazers G3 doesn’t kill the pests so it’s a good idea to improve biodiversity in the garden to encourage their natural predators.
Some birds eat the cabbage white butterfly larvae so it’s worth providing feeders and nest boxes. It’s also helpful to plant lots of flowers and blooming herbs around your cabbage patch to provide a strong supply of nectar for beneficial insects
