I am a Master Gardener and this is my strategy:

1. For the brassicas; cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower etc, nothing beats row covers.
2. For horn worms, try companion planting with basil and borage amongst your tomatoes.
3. For squash bugs, plant onions in your squash hills.

The only other pests we have to really worry about are Colorado potato beetles. Those we handpick and feed to the chickens.
