Squash bugs or (U)squash(/U) bugs or (S) use Ortho Bug Be Gone(/S

15 years ago

I made the fatal mistake of using "Free" city mulch last year. I got one hell of an infestation of squash bugs, the first time in 50+ years of gardening. Too much of a coincidence, I know I got them from the city. Last fall when I cleared the garden of debris, there were thousands of them. With the few warm days we have had this spring, I am seeing them everywhere. I will probably be seeing them in my sleep. My problem now is, do I quit growing summer squads for several years (my favorite veggie) or do I use Ortho Bug be Gone. I think there will be too many to control them manually.
