For some time now, in my vegetable garden, small, thin, almost red, pink worms about two centimeters long have been lurking beneath the surface of the soil and close to the root in the center of the tufts of salad. in a few days the head withers and the plant dies.What can I do to eradicate this pest and what product can I use? thank you
the behavior of devouring the roots of the salad could be that of night larvae, try to upload some photos on the internet to understand if it is really those. These larvae feed on roots and foliage throughout their life, and can cause serious damage to the vegetable garden if the population is high. They are fought using special granular baits, easily available in any nursery.
