Q.Squash and Cucumber Borers

Anonymous added on April 15, 2014 | Answered

I have squash and cucumbers that are only a few weeks old and I noticed that several of the stems look dry and you can actually see a slit in the stem. I pulled a few and did not see any grubs or borers in them. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
