One of the most destructive, feared and hated garden pests can destroy squash and pumpkin plants without remorse.
Seemingly overnight.
Fight them like you never have before.
This year… it's personal.
 
The third and final part of the video series focuses on attacking the vine borer moths (a.k.a. the "mothership"). Daily reconnaissance of your squash and/or pumpkin plants is your best defense. The moths appear in the spring, and have one mission - to lay eggs on the most vulnerable areas of the plant vines. Armed with knowledge and a net, you can capture and destroy the moths before they do irreparable damage.
 
Good luck, and happy hunting!
