Dear Lee Valley,

This picture shows my father's remedy for cutworms. He is 82 years old and loves his tomato plants. He taught me this idea of using 1/2-inch polyethylene slit loom to stop the cutworms. It has stopped the damage to his tomato, pepper and bean plants.

Remedy for cutworms

He got the roll of wiring loom from the local hardware store and cut it 3 to 4 inches long. When he transplants his plants from his greenhouse to his garden, he puts the slit loom around their stalks. When the plants are mature, he removes the loom and saves it for the following year. He has done this for many years with great results.

I thought this might be helpful to your customers.

Ottawa, Ontario.
