Beetles love cabbage plants. Use a mixture of two tablespoons dishsoap to one quart of water in a spray bottle , will rid you of the bugs in several applications.

Planting a garlic barrier usually works on most pests and it looks nice. Mint also makes a great plant to put next to cabbage. It also repels mice.
