Bacterial Wilt (Cucumbers)


Description: Large vines gradually wilt and die (no yellowing

of leaves); young plants die rapidly. Bacterial wilt

is spread by cucumber beetles.


Remove and destroy wilted plants. To prevent, use PyolaTM Insecticidal

Spray; start applications as soon as plants are

above ground, at 5 to 7 day intervals, or as necessary

to control cucumber beetles. Or grow vines under Super-Light Insect Barriers; remove covers

for pollination; resume spraying while cover is off.
