How do I get rid of squash bugs?!

I have tried laying newspaper down, picking them off the plants and squishing them with my fingers, spraying. Nothing works! How do you get rid of these pesky bugs?

    Try spraying with Neem oil...we found it on Amazon for our lily bugs (which are next to impossible to eradicate). Used it three years now with excellent results. Mix in spray bottle with some warm water, and spray every two weeks.
