Row Covers and Pest Control Q & A
Anyone use row covers for Squash bug? If so, where is a cheap row cover I can get and put up for a few weeks and then take down for pollination?
Has anyone tried trapping SVB Moths in yellow containers?
Has anyone had success with Cucumber beetle traps? If so, what brand and where to buy? Or, how many people have used diatomaceous earth? How to use it? is it safe?
People keep telling me to just get a medium pyrethrin spray instead.
What the hell do i do? and if my plants keep on doing well, with some damage of course, can I eat the fruits (cucumber and squash)?
Bottom line, I want to save all of my plants even though there doesn't seem to be SVB yet in my area nor do I think the Cucumber beetles have gotten really bad...
Also, does anyone have a really good article or info on Cucumber beetle and it's lifespan/what it does to damage plan ts? Do they lay eggs on the plants and such? or is it just when they feed on them and leave a dirty disease?
So many questions. Need answers!
