Squash vine borer sightings
I dug five or so squash vine borers out of my plants today. Ew. They were in my squash and pumpkins. Nasty things. I think (hope) most of the affected plants will survive. For the plants that had vined out, I firmed soil over part of the vine to encourage it to root, but that was only six of them. The vegetable marrow and yellow squash are bushed and there isn't a good place to encourage them to root.
This is just FYI for anyone else growing squash in Oklahoma.
I think I heard from someone that SVB comes in two waves here. One's bad enough, but when should I expect another assault? Or does it just continue erratically?
