    Last year my crop was plagued with army worms. Are there any preventative measures I should take to keep them at bay. What do I do when they attack?

    You can always use a spinosad-based insecticide to keep them away, or there are biological methods, too. You can use any of the tomato plant dusts with BT in it, too. The bacteria will keep the army worms away.

    If you do get them, just use the BT powders then but try to catch it before they get there because they can really wreak havoc on a plant.
