Bugs already -- Help!

lovemygourdsMay 5, 2007

After torrential rains last week, I surveyed yesterday and gourds and squash were sprouting nicely. This morning the leaves are chewed up and I see numerous striped cucumber beetles in the garden.

What is the best way to deal with this, and how soon should I plant seeds again? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Here's a link to a good discussion on cucumber beetles, last summer in the vegetable forum.
