Q.Squash borer

Zone Gainesville, GA | rita@aceinbox.com added on April 9, 2018 | Answered

For the last few years I have been unable to grow yellow and zucchini squash to harvest because the plants have been infested with squash borers. I learned this is the larva of a moth and it digs into the plant stems and it kills the plants.
How can I prevent this larva and finally harvest some veggies?
Thank you for taking the time.
