When Squash Bugs Attack

July 26, 2018 12:27 PM | Anonymous

It seems the hungry grasshoppers in the dye garden have an accomplice. Peggy has dubbed the perpetrators “squash” bugs, though I am not at liberty to say why. They have a penchant for gnawing on the joints of plant stems until whole sections break off, young buds and all. Numerous counts of this destructive crime have been committed.

Here is a squash bug mug shot. If you or anyone you know has information about how to stop the squash bugs, please dial 9-1…Oh wait, guess I got a little carried away. Yeah, just let us know if you know an organic way to keep them off the plants. Please and thank you.

Correction: The bugs are actually called squash bugs.  Also, www.almanac.com/pest/squash-bugs says planting nasturtium, an edible flower plant, near the affected plants may help.
