I've got those little bastards and there cousins. Organocide works pretty good as a repellent but needs to be applied every other day. I used diamaceous earth (maybe not enough) and still found slugs and catipillars. so I declared war and have been manually scanning and picking these Dudes off. I'm also looking for a better solution.

Stevo, this "Organocide" where did you get it at? HD or Lowes? I don't have a problem with applying it every 2 days, if it stops them

Why do you need to get rid of these pests? Are your plants dying? Plants are tougher than you think - they can support insects eating their leaves. They will make more leaves up top!

Agreed. I was referring to new sprouts where leaves are limited. I've had catippilars and or slugs strip one foot bines in one night.

My pillars are black and fuzzy. They live on the underside of the leaves but leave the hops alone. I used sevin dust prior to the hop creation and it works somewhat, but I don't dust after the hops form. They can eat an entire plant fast.
