squash vine borers were attaching my buttercup squash again this year. I have lost battles to squash vine borers for the last three years and this year they have taken out my zucchini plants and most of my buttercup squash. After my previous post, I was reminded about an NDSU extension article I had linked to on The Full Circle Gardener Facebook page by a Facebook reader. The article pointed out that squash plants root at multiple points along the stem and that one might be able to save a plant by providing multiple locations of ground contact and thus rooting points.
Do you have a garden pest you have been able to conquer this year? I'd love to hear how you obtained your victory.
Happy Gardening! :)
