How do you get rid of squash bugs in your garden? I am running out of Ideas. Nearly every year that I have any type of squash- summer or winter, they attack it. I grew zucchini, acorn, and pumpkins this year. They weren't there at the start because I rotate my garden every year. They were little later getting started because I picked them off by hand, found their eggs and got rid of them too. I'm losing ground now though. The kids love the pumpkins and I love the summer squash so I'd really hate to give up growing these. I'm just real tired of the pests.
