Re: Is Your Squash Bored to Death?

Squash bugs are not the same as squash borers but can wreak havoc on the plants and fruit. They are stink bugs. I pick them off and crush them (hold your nose). When watering they will run up the vine and you can catch them. Wear gloves as they are prickly too. I try to minimize wetting the foliage as this invites more trouble. Mine are multiplying like crazy. They lay brown eggs in a cluster underneath leaves. Then hatch by the hundreds. Good luck.

Will try the radish suggestion. Thanks.
