cumber beetle. In every gardening website I can find there is only information on PREVENTING damage from pests, not RESCUING a garden from pests. Do crop covers work to protect maturing plants AFTER infestation has started? Is there any way to rejuvenate infected crops? Cucumber beetle seems to be the main culprit and I am already killing them as best as I can on a multi-daily basis. Is there anything else I can do to stop the spread of pest infection? Thank you.
