I'm seeing some cucumber beetles in my garden. I know what they are because they used to be in my old garden. I'd like something natural I can spray so I can get this problem under control right away and treat as needed. What do you suggest?
Cucumber beetle control is best attained by treating early and often. We have several non toxic sprays that can do the job.
The most common for cucumber beetle control would be INSECTICIDAL SOAP but the MULTI PURPOSE INSECT KILLER and the 3 IN 1 CONCENTRATE are probably more effective on this sometimes tough to kill beetle.
You can read more about this in the organic section of our CUCUMBER BEETLE CONTROL ARTICLE.
Be sure to get underneath the plant leaves when spraying and use a good PUMP SPRAYER to do the job. Remember, these beetles like to hide out of site and any that are missed can continue to feed. It will take a little longer to treat more thorough but in the end, the effort will be worth it.
