Squash Bug

Description: Up to 5/8" long. When newly hatched, they have reddish heads and legs, and green bodies. Later, heads and legs turn black, and the body turns a light to dark gray. They suck sap from leaves of all vine crops, causing rapid wilting which becomes black and crisp. During early part of growing season, vine crops are easily killed.

Solution: Early detection is important since full grown squash bugs are difficult to kill. PyolaTM Insecticidal Spray or 5% Rotenone is effective on younger stages. With only one generation per year, squash bug damage can be greatly reduced by keeping vines covered with Super-Light Insect Barriers until blossoming begins.
