I'm done fighting them. I'm ONLY growing C. moschata species of squash this year. Moschata's have solid stems and it's said that SVB's don't bother them.

I have Tromboncino for summer squash -- just harvested my first fruit this morning and am planning to put it in pasta sauce later -- and Seminole for Pumpkin/winter squash. Butternut is another one but I wanted to try something new. :wink:

There are quite are few varieties to try so I think I'll keep growing different ones if this year is successful. 8)

Good luck with that! In my experience the SVB's always win in the end, but I probably haven't been as persistent.

I go out there at least once a day and check the entire plants over. granted my advantage this year is that my plants are much smaller than they should be :) so there is much less to check over :)
