My ignorance is showing again. I have no ide what a squash boers is.
I have no real problem with bugs on my squash. The only problem I have is chickens breaking into them and deer. Deer are terrible. Rats on long legs!
My Guineas patrol my garden and they are worth the hassle in the number of bugs they pick off my plants, I have very little problem with bugs because of them. They even pick the potato bugs and cabbage moths that people told me they would not eat.
Glad to hear you do not know . To me that means you do not have this pest . https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=squash+borers&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-003 . It is a moth larva that gets inside the stem and the chewing kills the plant .
