This is definitely off topic but I think too good not to mention.  Here 
it is summer and the white butterflies are much in evidence.  One day 
one of my sons, who is most certainly not a gardener, said that 
sprinkling flour on brassicas makes the plants of no interest to the 
white butterflies.  So with a teastrainer I have dusted my broccoli 
plants and no caterpillars, watched some white butterflies dancing 
around and they didn't show any interest in the broccoli.  Have waited 
for a week to see if it really is so, and still of no interest.  We had 
a shower one day which washed quite a bit off, but there still was some, 
and still no caterpillars.

Would it work with other things, like daffodil grub etc?

remember ever having had a summer so hot and for so long.
