If this is a squash borer infestation it will likely spread quickly and kill the Watermelon very quickly.
Removing the diseased plants to help the problem from spreading is the best coarse of action.

If the damage is from another type of insect, Neem Oil may work as a treatment. It is safe for people, pets and bees.
