If memory serves they are typically white or yellow, and glued down in a circular pattern on the undersides of the leaves. Anything I find gets scraped off ...

You don't need a floating row cover, just something that has holes smaller than the cabbage butterflies so that they can't lay their eggs on the plants.

This is a pic of my cabbage but I bought some cheap tulle fabric last year and made a cover and it worked great to exclude the pests. Aphids could get through but I don't have a problem with those.
