Why are almost mature squash shrivelling up?

Thank you all for a wonderful site & for the time spent answering & making it all work. I have yellow summer squash that are shriveling up just before maturing (around 6″-8″ long). Soil is damp – not soaked, bug free for the most art, ends are not rotting as I’ve seen w/BER, not sure about pollination. Any ideas of what I’m overlooking or missing? Thanks

This is generally a pollination problem. Short of importing a beehive to your garden, you might want to try pollinating yourself: [1]
