Squash bugs can destroy crops and are quite the nuisance. Check your squash plants daily for signs of squash bugs and their eggs.
What to look for:
Look for tiny eggs that are yellow, brown or reddish in color. They lay their eggs on the underside of leaves in groups that are usually evenly spaced.
How to remove them:
Squish the eggs gently with your finger, by rolling them back and forth on the leaf, making sure not to damage the leaf itself. You can even wrap a piece of duct-tape inside out, around your fingers and use your hand to quickly and easily remove the eggs.
If you see any squash bug nymphs, which are wingless grey or green bugs, remove those as well!
