Squash Plants
Q.

My squash leaves have little yellow spots and are not growing

I am treating for thrips at the suggestion of the local nursery, but am not seeing much change. Normally my squash grows fast and furious, so I'm really stumped.

It is likely a fungus. There are several that can create those yellow spots. Treat the plant with a fungicide. I like neem oil myself as it treats both fungus and pests and is safe for people and pests.
