I don't live too far away and have been having more trouble than usual with the cutworm types... I blame the warmer than usual winter but I am not sure for the official reason. Dipel helps on most things but there is some worm type eating on the new roots of a rhubarb I am trying to start. Dipel was ineffective so I drenched the plant in Eight(permethrin). I'm not sure if it will survive.
