Pesticides

I've had enough!!!  Today I ordered a jug of pyrethrin.  The brassicas are almost all destroyed by cabbageworms and the Japanese beetles are going to town on almost everything else... Sweet corn, green beans, etc.  I direct seeded my squash and melons late but it's probably just a matter of time before some pest moves in there.  No amount of preventive measure is working.  There aren't enough beneficial insects to make a dent and my floating row covers went on too late (I guess) and just trapped in the cabbage worms.
