So after further review my father said it looked like he hit the bottom with the weed wacker becuse it was damaged at the bottom but he swears he doesn't go that close. he told me this prior to reading your post clonefarmer, now after reading your post this will have to investigate further. Is there anything else you or anyone else can tell me about this worm. prevention or other signs other than more of my hops killing over.
thanks to all for any other help
