How I killed a squash vine borer
My tromboncino squash suddenly started to droop and I found the culprit!. In the past when I tried to remove the SVB worm, I would cut into the vine too much. This time, I used my seam ripper from my sewing kit. It allowed me to pinpoint where the borer was and easily remove it without ruining the vine, like I usually do. The vine is growing on my fence. So, I used some tape to cover the wound I created. My DH refers to me as a garden surgeon now! The vine took a day to recuperate but is now thriving.
