I read on another website that BT is an organic spray horn worm repellant. Where can I find it? Any other tips for getting rid of these nasty worms? I'm too squeamish to touch them, but maybe DH will rip 'em off for me when he gets home.

This page says it's on backorder, but I bet you could call them and find out if they have a recommendation for a place that carries it locally. Of have any other products that might work. Or just google "BT where to buy"

I get Bt under the label Dipel (I buy the powder), and I can get it at my local "farmer's union" - hardware/farm store, as well as at my plant nursery. I think it's pretty common. It works really well for me.
