Cucumber Beetle solutions... effective advice is always wonderful
I am working on my first garden and decided for it to be as eco-friendly to the bug population as I am able to bare it. I have been convinced that there can be a balance of good bug, bad bug population in your garden. Even the black widows that found home actually helped me with my grasshopper and worm problems very nicely. Unfortunately, since family w/children were coming over during the holiday I had to get rid of them. I am expect a flux in the bug eco-system even more because of those actions.
Well, my question was not about Black Widows, but about Cucumber Beetles. I am currently interested in what eats, wards, attacks, or flees these pests form the area. I am noticing a larger population now on a daily basis of these buggers.
Aware what diseases these flying buggers can transmit I have begun to swat them like flies. I really have not read up on any good bugs yet that might take care of this bad bug.

Hope everyone had a safe and rewarding Independence day!
