Cucumber problem

Looks like and insect problem. Does anyone know what it is and what I can do to get rid of it. Thank you so much

I think you must have posted the same question somewhere else, but I'm not going to go looking for it. But I agree with who ever responded to the other one and said it looks like caterpillar droppings. I'd go looking for the caterpillar (there must be a pony in here somewhere! :) )

:lol: gotta go with Rainbow gardener on this one :lol:
...with huge droppings like that, it MUST be a PONY... :shock:
And should be easy to spot, and eliminate...save the Bt for harder to find bugz

Looks like a curled leaf beside the main leaf in the photo. Uncurl the leaf and see if the critter is hiding inside.

Thank you everyone, going to get some dust. I thought it was eggs of some kind.Did not know it was poop :). I am not used to growing in the fall, but this is Florida and I hope to learn.
