My squash plant is in bad shape. The leaves look like they were shot with a shot gun blast and I've noticed white maggot looking critters in the plant itself. I seek and squish them but they keep coming back....just like the leaf miners. Every time the plant starts to grow a squash it gets destroyed by borers.
So should I give up and remove the squash plant, or let it just exist as a food source for worms?
Also if I remove the plant, will these borers go after my tomato plants?
