Squash Blossoms Eaten Off
Something is eating my squash blossoms at the base of the blossom and they fall to the ground at the time that they should be pollinated. There are small black dots on stems and blossoms when this happens.

They are most likely not being eaten. This is typical behavior for a squash plant. They will produce mostly male (non-fruiting) blossoms early in the season and will gradually start to produce more female blossoms as the season progresses. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.
