Is there a good way to control tobacco budworms in hanging petunia baskets?
I have three beautiful hanging petunia baskets and i noticed small black balls on them which i was told is a tobacco budworm. Is there a way to get rid of or control these to save my hanging baskets? I see beautiful baskets like mine all over cities, hanging from lamp posts that last the entire summer, why do mine struggle to merely make it through July yearly? What am I not doing that the commercial sites are to keep them alive? How do I control these tobacco budworms? I am just noticing them.
