Does anyone have a good way to control Mexican Bean Beetles? I had a
large infestation last year that pretty much wiped out my Squash and pumkins....they are back!:eek:-Many Thanks-Jay

I don't know what those bugs are, but have you tried diatomaceous earth? You can lightly dust the plant leaves and see if that doesn't help. Also I used Diepl Dust - which is the powdered form of BT to keep Squash Vine Borers off my squash plants.

Hope these are helpful suggestions - let us know how things go.
