Hi,

Floating row covers may help, but be sure you've removed all the worms from your plants before putting them in place. Look for products containing either Pyrethroid or Bifenthrin for another control option..

Always follow the instructions on the label when applying a pesticide and be sure the product you use is registered for use on both gooseberries and currants.
