Cabbage butterflies (the little white ones) will lay eggs that turn into little green worms but you will usually see lots of little poops on the leaves when you have them. I have even seen cabbage butterflies flying around the cabbage seedlings in the greenhouse. I surround my cabbage plants with crushed eggshells to deter slugs and then I cover the plants with floating row covers to keep the cabbage butterflies out.Here's a picture from last year.
