Squash Browning and Rotting

The tips of my yellow squash are turning brown and starting to rot. They are still young and small and are no bigger than two or three inches long. I know the flower will die and turn brown, but where the flower is connected to the squash, it is doing the same. Should the flowers be plucked off once they start dying, or is this a watering or pest issue? The plants themselves look great.

Yellow Leaves on My Squash Plants

I’m guessing that my yellowing is coming from a lack of iron. I’m probably overwatering a bit. I have heard that I may need some iron, but I don’t know anything about that. How much? What kind? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Squash Borer

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. Here are some articles that may help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/squash-pests-identifying-and-preventing-squash-vine-borer.htm

Zucchini and Yellow Squash Dying

My zucchini and yellow squash was growing well and now all of a sudden the base of the stalks, it is turning a mushy yellow and I can just pull the whole plant off. Is it a bug or fungus? Also, the yellow squash has started turning black and rotting from the bottom up.
