Stems of young transplants or seedlings may be severed at soil line due to cutworms. The larvae causing the damage are usually active at night time and hide during the day in the soil at the base of the plants or in plant debris of toppled plant.
If damage or larvae are discovered, it can be physically removed and crushed or dropped into soapy water. It can also be treated by using Chlorpyrifos (CPS) mixed in 2 ml in water.
