I think I may slowly be winning the fight with the squash bugs. I found one adult and two leaves with eggs yesterday, but the plants have resumed growing squash. I am taking this as a sign that I’ve made at least some progress. I am still going to treat the plants with peppermint oil even after I no longer find adults (if I reach that point). I figure the plants will be susceptible to easily getting infested again.
I wasn’t prepared for the corn coming on so quickly. I think I have missed my opportunity to treat the ears for worms. I need to read my information on it again and decide. I’ll get the mineral oil ready just in case. I have yet to see any tomato worms so I am hoping we may skip those this year. I wish you luck in all your pest control endeavors!
