I think we should probably have to tried netting over hoops to keep the buggers off. We used organic pesticide powder out of desperation, but as you can see it didn't work very well. You really need to reapply often for it to work. We generally don't like to use any pesticides - organic or not.
Anyhow, have a fun upcoming season and enjoy whatever nutritious Brassica plants you decide to grow and eat!
