Southwest Yard & Garden – Act Now to Control Squash Bug Populations
Question: Squash bugs decimated my plants and my crop last summer. What should I be doing now to prevent this from happening again? Sarah H., Las Cruces
Answer: You are not alone, and I’m glad you’re already gearing up. Last year I addressed multiple questions about controlling squash bugs in September and October columns. However, by then, most squash bug problems were beyond help, and I promised to address this issue earlier this year. This week, I’ve collected recommendation snippets from archived columns going all the way back to 2008.
