What are the most disease resistant Summer squash?

I love crookneck yellow and zucchini but borers and disease wipe them out pretty quick every summer. I need something that tastes the same without having to spray constantly.

I found a thread dealing with this topic. Perhaps you will find just the right variety among those discussed. Tromboncino is a c. moschata and hence resistant to borers.
