Yellow Squash and Powdery Mildew

Has anyone who has experienced powdery mildew in their yellow squash beds found a variety that has a good resistence to it? I started out with Multi-pik and Super-pik which produced well but both got inundated with PM. I tried Cheetah last summer, but it didn't produce very well, but on the bright side I didn't get any PM. I've been hearing a lot of good things about Conqueror III and I'm going to try it this coming spring. Are there any other good producing varieties you are aware of that have a good resistence to PM and downy mildew? I live in central Alabama where the humidity is quite high in the summer.

Someone on another blog who grows yellow squash in zone 8a suggested Gentry as well as Daisy May and Dixie. I think I'll also plant some Gentry to see how well it does as well.

I remember something about using Milk to treat for PM and I found the link for it here on GW. See link below..
