How to stop Cutworms before you have a problem.

Cutworms are incapable of digesting cornmeal, but can't seem to stop eating this tasty little treat. Overeating of cornmeal for a cutworm results in death and no more cutworms. Sprinkle corn meal on your garden several days before you plant and the problem is solved. Cornmeal will turn into compost if the doves don't eat it first.

Great tip, I bet we can even dust our plants with it, for the ones the moths lay directly on the leaves... What could cornmeal hurt?
