How can I treat cabbage root fly. All of the old solutions seem to have been taken off the shelf.

Thank you, Keith



It looks pretty grim, Keith, but this is what I found:

Products containing spinosad are also worth a try, but I'm not certain whether or not that's available in the UK.

Nemasys applied in April is a biological control that may be useful for the overwintered grubs that are in the soil
Covering with fine mesh may help.
And of course, move your brasssicas to an area not previously used for them.

True! With all of the insecticides going off the market--usually for good reason--crop rotation is becoming critical.
