|The implacable foe|
So anyway, after a couple months of fighting squash bugs 'naturally,'* it's time to fall back on an old strategy: nuke the bastards.
There are apparently a couple ways to use Sevin dust that do not endanger bees and all the other good bugs, while still taking out most of the bad bugs. The one I'm going to try is sprinkling it around the base of the plant and ripping out any flower within 18". So we'll see if that works.
But if tactical nukes don't solve the problem, there are always bunker busters.
* Mostly spraying the plants with a Dawn mixture. I suppose there are people who have time to go over every leaf in the garden squashing eggs by hand. I'm not one of them.
