Squash Vine Borer Moth/Eggs spotted

14 years ago

Ok last time I grew pumpkins, these boogers destroyed my plants and I had them in EACH VINE. I'm growing squash plants now, and I do NOT want to go through this again. I have spotted the moths, and recognized them. I also looked closely and spotted the eggs throughout several plants. I immediately sprayed a liquid BT application on the whole plants. I then used Dipel Dust (BT) to dust them (just incase)... but the rain came today and im sure it washed it all off. What should I do to prevent the eggs from hatching, or prevent the larvae from entering the plants. Also how long do they take to hatch?
