Little Green Worms on Zucchini Leaves

I found little green worms on my Zucchini plants. They are under the leaves. Some of them are in a web like material. How do I get rid of them and keep them from coming back?

I have pretty good luck with soap (not detergent), at 1 tablespoon in a gallon, sprayed on the leaves in the evening so the sun won't burn them up. Spray it on so its dripping off the plant. Worked pretty well with spider mites & other pest in garden & flowers,good luck.

BT (bacillus thurengensis) is a natural worm/catepillar killer that will not harm any other animals. (Though it will harm the catepillars we want--so don't spray indiscriminately.) If the soap (your first line of defense) doesn't do the job, try BT.


(You purchase a concentrate, then mix and spray. It is available most everywhere.)
