Re: Help! Cucumber beetles have taken over the garden.

hey Jsig. I'm no expert, but I'm using neem oil. I also am in Texas under this severe heat. Grasshoppers were eating my plants faster than I could watch. I now mix 1oz. dishsoap in 1 gallon water, mix well, then add 1oz. neem oil mixing well again. put it in my sprayer and spray my vegetable plants top and bottom till the leaves look wet. Seems to be working.
Couldnt hurt to try it. Neem oil is not toxic, does not effect pollinators, but stops pest from eating. Look it up on the internet.
Good Luck
