Something is cutting off the flowers and eating baby squash. The flowers are definitely being cut off. What could this be? Thanks.

Nothing is cutting off or eating your blooms or baby squash. 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. The male blossoms typically drop from the plant and seemingly disappear. Give it some time and you will see it start fruiting.
