Evil squash vine borer that lay eggs

The larvae that eat squash plants from the inside and kill them

Watch my video to see how I am combating the invasion of squash vine borers. I have been having a wonderful squash harvest until now. Harvested approximately 25 yellow summer squash and 2 zucchini until July 30 (my mom’s birthday). Gave many away, ate many more and don’t want to give up now if I don’t have to. Listen to Jason Akers of The Self Suficient Gardener describe this pest in detail and how he recommends being on the lookout for them and how to repair damage.

Keep an eye out for Part 2 to see if my fix works or not.
