Got Beetles ?

1 comment

So far this season I have not observed any evidence of a single cucumber beetle. Usually the first wave arrives sometime in May but so far nothing yet.

Is it possible that the freeze thaw cycles of this past winter and wet spring have taken a toll on them? I have also noticed that there are no honey bees around this summer. Normally they are around in large numbers but so far none.

Still no sign of them here. I did see my 1st squash bug yesterday. We did a foliar spray last night to hopefully get rid of them before they do any damage. Plants are coming along, but are bit smaller than last year at this time.

    John won the 150 square foot contest this year with a 1175.6 lb. pumpkin. The first one grown over 1000 lbs. in this contest. Congrats John!
