Thank you for your comments, boy do I appreciate them
I will try rubbing alcohol first! And DE would be extremely effective because it's been so dry. Row covers are a great idea but would be a little pricey for me to do with 4 45 foot rows of squash. I did have great results with hand picking and I will continue to do that!
I read that squashbugs were attracted to heavily mulched vines. They go there during the night for refuge.
Thanks again! Just trying to find a solution that works best for me.
Rubbing alcohol? How do you apply?
Edit: I planted heavily with icicle radishes, nastertiums, lavender, and marigolds! Not just around, but in between, too. They are truely interplanted.
