Q.Hole In Gold Zucchini Blossom Bud

Zone Mesa Arizona | j9pestel added on April 24, 2021 | Answered

Hi Everyone; I checked our garden this morning, and everything was fine. We have a gold zucchini plane with 5 (potentially) nice zucchini on it – (They still need to blossom and get pollinated). This evening, I discovered that something has eaten a large hole in one of the zucchini blossom buds. Would this be the work of squash bugs? Thank you all in advance and have a wonderful evening. – Janine
