Squash Borer

Anonymous added on June 23, 2011 | Answered

You mention pesticides for taking care of the squash borer, but you don't list any products. I want to use something that is safe to me, my family, and the environment. What do you suggest? Also, what can I do about blossom rot?

Neither organic or non-organic pesticides will work after the plants are infested, as the stem itself keeps the borers from coming in contact with the pesticide.
