2009 Cucumber Beetles

zephyrusJuly 21, 2009

I live in southern Oneida County (New Hartford). By mid-June in '06 & '07, I had a heavy infestation of cucumber beetles. Last year, they didn't appear in earnest until mid-July and they were not as numerous. This year, knock on wood, not a beetle spotted. However, a friend of mine who lives abt 7 miles away had a nasty problem with them. Wondering if anyone else has noticed a decline in CBs this year, or, has it been business as usual?

Last year I had a really bad infestation. This year they're around, but not in as great a number. I wonder if the late freezes we had this spring knocked down their numbers. I'm in Onondaga county.
