Knowledge to Grow: Eliminating the squash bug - Sturgis Journal

Squash bug eggs are orange or copper, 1/16-inch long and are laid in clusters on the top or underside of the leaves and on stems. Nymphs hatch in one to two weeks, are 3/16 to a half-inch long and range in color from a mottled white to a greenish-gray with black legs. In a time from of four to six weeks, they molt several times, increasing their size each time, and then become adults. The best method for control of these bugs is to keep the garden clean. Remove cucurbit plants after harvest and keep the garden free from debris where bugs can overwinter. Use protective covers such as row covers, removing them at bloom time to allow for the pollination process to take place. Growing vines vertically can make cucurbits less vulnerable to squash bug infestations. Some squash varieties are more resistant to bug damage than others. Using insecticides to kill squash bugs is difficult, because the pests often hide near the crown and can be hard to reach with a spray. Neem oil and horticultural oil are less toxic to the environment and work best on small nymphs. Good coverage is essential, so nymphs hiding under the leaves and deep within the plant will be reached. Other, more toxic, pesticides can be used, but they also have a negative effect on bees and beneficial insects. If you use an insecticide, spray in late afternoon or evening to avoid injury to bees.
