Cucumber Beetles

the_lady_larrie(z6 PA)August 23, 2009

I live in a town house development where most everything is grown in a pot. At a greenhouse in June I found gourd seedlings on sale. So I bought them and planted them under some trees and they took off (yay!). I now see they have cucumber beetles on them as well as other things. After this long narration, my question is this:

In this development where the most ambitious gardening undertaken is planting annuals, how did they find me? Where did they come from? there are no veggies being grow near me at all!
