Squash pollination

Zone New Jersey | chefbengenie added on June 17, 2015 | Answered

How do you know if the squash is pollinated? Will the fruit become longer or should I assume that it isn't and pollinate it myself? I do have a decent amount of bees around, so I have assumed that they are pollinated since the flowers go limp. Am I correct?
