Pickleworms and Squash Any Suggestions
My zucchini was growing so well and then what I think are pickleworms have bored into the stems. I bought seeds that are supposed to be resistant to vine borers and they seem to be. When one bores into the main stem the plant just keeps on growing as if nothing has happened BUT now my leaves are wilting and I find what looks like a pickleworm in each stem.
I'm so upset! I've put diatomaceous earth around them and sprayed my garlic water on them. I've even sprayed neem oil on them. Today I figured they were dying anyway so I mixed up some diatomaceous earth with water and used a baby medicine syringe to put some in all of the stem holes. It may help and then they might all die anyway.
Has anyone had any luck with them?
