This year I wanted melons and the site I used worked well enough that I was able to harvest 20 melons from 3 hills.
I plan on using the same arrangement next year for pumpkins, but for pumpkins and gourd family I have a ongoing battle every year with squash bugs. My collar and DE arrangement keeps the vine borers away , but by late July all the squash, gourd and pumpkins get invaded by squash bugs.
Anyone have a spray program that works to keep these little buggers at bay?
Insecticidal soap is no match for the army I seem to attract.
I have enough remay type covering to put on the vines after pollination, would that be ok?
Thanks for any help.
