I have almost no blooms on the squash plants and it seems no pollen on these that do bloom, but tons of fruit that is falling off going to waste. No male blooms on squash plants.

I'm sorry your squash plants aren't producing well for you! This is usually due to extreme heat or water deprivation, or some combination of both.

If your average temperatures this year have been higher than normal, you should increase your watering and take steps to help protect your plants from the excessive heat.
