Bacillus thuriengensis, horticultural oils, insecticidal soaps, natural enemies, pruning, row covers, and sanitation are ways to control worms on basil. The worms most typical…ly may be beet beet armyworms, cabbage loopers, cutworms, or leafhoppers. Natural predators will range from birds to lacewings and parasitic flies or wasps.
Yes. It is an edible plant. The rabbit may not eat too much of it. It is a very strong herb but will not hurt the rabbit.
I am struggling with the same problem. So far I am resorting to carefully inspecting my plants (indoors in pots since it is November in Ohio) each day, but have found the worm…s very difficult to see, even when large. This morning I gave the plant a vigorous shake and 2 worms fell out, so I plan on shaking every day. Does anyone know if the worms are hatching from the soil? Next I plan on scraping out the top layer of soil and replacing.
Spray it with a ton of water! and they'll eventually get off
Very easy 1. Take out all the worm first. Search under all leaves there might be some cocoon already developed as well. 2. Cut all flowers. Dont let the flower…s to bloom, when therey are long enough just cut it. The flying insect will lay the egss in the flowers, then the worm will eat all the plant. Guaranteed success!

Place your freshly cut basil stems in a glass of water, like flowers in a vase. Refrigerate until ready for use. It will last 5 to 7 days this way. If I have extra basil I c…hiffonade it (cut into thin ribbons) and freeze it with water in an ice cube tray. Then bag the cubes for later inclusion in soups and sauces. Frozen this way it will keep up to a year.
No it will make them sick
You bet your britches, Scotty
I have fed both my Sarasa goldfish fresh basil on occasions and they seem to enjoy it alot. I feed them all sorts of fruit, veg and live foods to keep them healthy and happy. …Things like: cooked shelled peas lettuce spinach orange -skin and piff removed chunks of cucumber-great play toy too. They love to get the seeds out from the middle. frozen and live bloodworms, ect Be careful you do not overfeed them and keep an eye on water parameters-not to much sugary foods, so orange as an occasional treat. Fish are ominvores so they benefit from a whole range of foods. Dont feed anything processed or un-natural.

A knife is the best choice. You can use scissors though but its cut will not be as fine as the knife's.
It does hurt the worm. For earthworms only the part containing the nerve center (it's too simple to be an actual brain) can survive, and only if the rest of the body isn't too… badly damage. If it does survive the missing part will regrow, but it takes energy to do that.
