In mid June I harvested several of my one ball squash. One of my favorite things about these squash are They keep a good long time on the counter with no need of refrigeration.
This 4th of July weekend, I was walking past the counter and looked down and saw Frass piled up on one of the squash I had harvested in mid-June.
I was not happy. Who’d of thought a squash vine borer could be in the stem alive after almost a month of the squash sitting on the counter.
I cut the grub out of the stem, took photos for this post and squished the little devil.
That grub means that my squash vines probably are on borrowed time. In a very short while the main vines in the garden will probably start dying. It makes me so made I could say something very unladylike.
The Squash Vine Borer is one of the most evil bugs in the garden because it’s almost impossible to do anything about them.
Here’s a photo of an adult Squash Vine Borer
I hope you all are having productive season
with no major infestations of pests.
