Yellow sqash looks like it's dying.

I have 2 zucchini and 1 yellow squash. The yellow squash's leaves are very droopy and looks like it's going to die. I inspected the vines and they appear to still be very green and thick, but the leaves are all drooping to the ground. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

Here is a picture of the squash next to the zucchini.

zucchini wilting

Your link didn't work for me, so I couldn't see the picture. But type zucchini root borer into the search box in the upper left of the page, read some of those posts and see if that seems like what's happened to yours.

[Here's your pic, I just viewed flickr's source code, since you can't just right click to get the url]

maybe grubs? Not sure why it would be grubs when the other plant isn't affected though. Maybe could just need water? Could also be a bacterial disease. wow, I seem I'm a huge help, hopefully someone will have a better anwser to your question.
Why buy produce when you can grow it?
