Been a lurker for years now. Just wondering how we're all feeling about squash bugs this year.
1) Seems like breeding strong seeds is the first line of defense, and I will be looking into that more. If anyone has any particularly delicious varieties, do tell.
2) I'm primarily interested in learning about anyone's experiences with neem oil and diatomaceous earth. Ive never grown squash, but I hear the squash bugs camp out at the base before becoming prolific. Any evidence these two substances help?
Just checking in! We shall prevail!
