How will I know when the squash borers are going to lay their eggs?
Janet Pizaro on Jun 14, 2017Use a organic insect systemic control with a organic insect spray for the plants themselvesHelpful Reply
Allison on Jun 18, 2017Row covers are such a hassle. I started using kaolin clay to prevent borers and squash bugs from destroying my cucurbits. It coats them to prevent the larva from being able to chew the leaves and stems. It may not save everyone, but it helps and is so much easier than wrapping the stems in nylon.Helpful Reply
