We've got these pesky critters in abundance this year since our drip
irrigation is keeping the gardens alive while all our neighbors gardens are
dry and dead.
Cucumber beetles are especially problematic (especially on members of the
squash family) as they transmit bacterial and/or viral wilt disease
organisms. I started with insecticidal soap, then neem, and am ready to get
out the rotenone soon if I don't see any drop in their numbers. I've also
got some yellow sticky traps out near the blossoms of my pumpkins, they're
attracted to yellow.
BTW- anybody know where I can buy the cucurbitan (spelling?) pheromone so I
can increase the effectiveness of my sticky traps?
