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 second part of the video series focuses on how to keep your squash and pumpkin plants alive. The vine borer moths have gotten the upper hand in the battle, by successfully laying eggs which have hatched into larvae. Bent on total plant destruction, the larvae grow quickly. Your mission is clear - take out the larvae, or lose your plants.
Removal of the larvae can be a challenge. Armed with knowledge, a knife, and a bandage, you can perform battlefield surgery to repair wounded vines.
Good luck, and happy hunting!
