Cabbage White Butterfly or Cabbage Moth Decoys

These life like white cabbage butterfly or cabbage moths decoys will move in the wind and are used for toxin-free pest control.  A cluster of these decoys are used to trick other butterflies and moths to move on before laying their eggs.

White Cabbage Butterflies and Cabbage Moths love to lay their eggs on plants in the Brassica family and some other leafy plants with fruit families. Their preference is for broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, turnip, brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower. Their young are caterpillars and they will happily munch through our crops' leaves and fruits.

How cabbage moth decoys work

Some gardeners believe that Cabbage Butterflies and Moths are territorial and lay their eggs where the hatched caterpillars will thrive on abundant food. By positioning these lookalike decoys in amongst your brassica plants, you will help deter the butterflies and moths from settling in due to competition for the available food.

Cabbage butterfly and cabbage moth decoys are an effective tool in integrated pest management. It is important to put these decoys in place as soon as you plant your brassica seedlings, or as soon as your seeds have begun to sprout - don't wait until you see a butterfly as it will generally be too late!

Alternatives to Cabbage Moth Decoys

There are a range of pesticide free methods which can also be used to deter cabbage moths including:

  • Companion planting with fragrant herb plants
  • Netting susceptible plants
  • Removing caterpillars by hand
  • Encouraging parasitic wasps into the garden
  • Planting sacrificial plants that they also like to eat such as Nasturtiums

Strong sturdy decoys

I have placed approx 20 around my brassicas. They are very durable and easy to use.

Works well

It's fairly early days, but they seem to be working perfectly. Good stuff.

Cabbage White Moth/Butterfly Decoys

We absolutely love this product. They work so well and none of our vegetables have been attacked this year. We see the cabbage whites coming into the garden, they see the decoys and leave, it's fantastic. Thank you

Thank you Tracey for your fab review! Happy gardening! The Urban Revolution Team :-)

The faux white butterflies look lovely amongst my lavender

They look attractive and hopefully they will keep most of the real cabbage butterflies away. They also keep down the use of insecticides. I'm all for that.

Received 31 May 2022. Placed in veg garden immediately and have not seen the cabbage white butterflies in the garden nor anywhere near it since.
So far so good
