little white wormies are on my petunias eating the petals! They just started this weekend while I was gone. How do I get rid of them?

It depends on if you are "organic" or not! I have to use chemicals because we have way too many bugs around here. So, on my petunias I either mix a weak solution of malthion ar dust with sevin...works everytime!

Nope...don't really care if its organic or not. I'm sure many people don't agree with me, but I figure there are so many things around here that aren't organic, what does it matter what I'm putting on the petunias. As long as it gets rid of the bugs.

What is this Sevin stuff? Where do I get it? Is it a powder?...since you say I just dust it on. Will it make the flowers look dirty??
