Bacterial Wilt (Cucumbers)

bacterial wilt cucumber

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.
