Bugs already -- Help!

Posted by lovemygourds (My Page) on

After torrential rains last week, I surveyed yesterday and gourds and squash were sprouting nicely. This morning the leaves are chewed up and I see numerous striped cucumber beetles in the garden.

What is the best way to deal with this, and how soon should I plant seeds again? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
