sunflowers attracting cucumber beetles

Anonymous added on July 4, 2015 | Answered

I read that sunflowers attract cucumber beetles away from cucumber plants. I planted the reddish variety. Do the sunflowers need to be the yellow kind?

    No, I do not think the variety matters. Cucumber beetles are naturally attracted to all sunflowers.
