Squash bugs, the most common, can take over visibly and quickly. Squash vine borers, though unseen mostly, work behind the scenes, and most people don't realize they've got a problem until it's too late.

In today's episode of the Beginner's Garden Podcast, I talk about the two most common pests plaguing our squash and zucchini plants. You'll learn:

  • How to detect the squash bugs and the squash vine borer
  • The best ways to combat squash bugs before they take over
  • two natural insecticides to use against the squash bug if the less invasive solutions don't work
  • 5 ways to prevent squash vine bore infestations
  • 2 ways to remove the borer without [hopefully] killing the plant
  • the mindset shift I made that led to more harvest and less frustration
  • ways to use succession planting for a longer harvest
