Squash Dying as They Start to Form From Blooms

tchast22 added on July 22, 2015 | Answered

Why are my squash dying as they start to form from the blooms? This is my first time for spaghetti squash and the vines are everywhere. I have 1 big squash and lots of blooms. BUT when the squash starts forming from the bloom, they get about an inch or so and start turn yellow and mushy and then die off. I have lots of them but I don't know what is happening with them. Are they being watered too much or what? I live in Chattanooga, Tn. Please help.

Most likely a pollination issue.
