Winter Squash Plants
Q.

young squash

Anonymous added on September 3, 2015 | Answered

We have little bugs on the plants which litteraly ate all the green and were on the skins of the squash. The plants themselves turned brown and left the squash (winter) very small and they stopped growing. They are smaller than a football and the skin is very thick. Seems like all skin and seeds. Is there anything I can do to mature these squash so I can use them?

About the only thing you can do is get rid of the insect pests. Neem oil should help with this. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm
