Tiny worms becoming a problem eating my leaves

I’m just looking for some insight on tiny little worms that are underneath my leaves eating my plants. They are very small almost look like a caterpillar but not .they tend to curl up in a ball when I grab them off and kill them. They are pretty much microscopic little bigger. Does anybody have any idea how I can kill these things organically without spraying chemicals on my plants. Everything I find on the Internet says taking them off manually and killing them. Please let me know if anybody has any insight???

This is what theylook like

captain jacks safe and effective


Captain Jack’s employs a bacterium called ‘Spinosad’ which is effective on some insects and not others. Another product called ‘Safer Caterpillar Killer’ uses a different bacterium called BtK which works on other insects. I normally use both products alternating 5 days apart.

Plan on whatever program you are on, needs to be continued throughout the entire grow.


Cabbage worms. Neem oil in water with a couple drops of dish soap. Don’t soak, but spray fairly liberal making sure to get under leaves. Every other day, in morning or evening, for about a week or until gone. Once a week, thereafter, for maintanence. Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Juice is another that works. Be sure to keep checking under leaves and in any flowering spots too.
