SVB 2, Sheeshshe 14

I'm winning!!! :) :) :) So far my digging them out is working. I've only missed 2 plants, and the borers won on those two. :) I've dug them out of my friends as well, and the ones at the field that I have some plants at. :) Thought maybe some of you might be curious :)

Awesome, I really hate SVB.

I actually didn't plant too much of the plants they like this year, curcubits etc. because of this fact. Though I did just plant a few things fairly late in the season when land opened up. So far so good I am hoping I missed their infestation period, we shall see.

Keep up the fight. :clap:

I did the same, I planted some late stuff for kicks. well one of them succumbed to the SVB. I hadn't been checking those because the moths had passe.d... but I had a plant there prior which I broke by accident. I bet some eggs fell off and they bored in. :( the other one that died, well, when I went to get the borer out, I dug in wrong and the stem broke too. :(
