My husband and I have planted a real nice garden and we want to keep it nice. Last year and all was going well but then all of a sudden cucumber beetles took it over. Is there a way we can stop this from happening again this year? Please Help..
First you should read our CUCUMBER BEETLE CONTROL article. Once you understand this pest, you'll realize it's best to start treating early on, before they get out of control and take over.
Second, I'd get one of the concentrates we have listed. The organic solutions are fine and work well. Treat early on with something like the MULTIPURPOSE INSECT KILLER or GARDEN DEFENSE WITH NEEM concentrates. Either sprayed a few times early on in the season will keep them away. Then if you see any during the growing period, treat again.
