Ever heard of putting a pin/needle through the base of the stalk anyone? My uncle says you can do this and prevent the plant from dying once borers enter. I'm skeptical on that one.

Replied to your PM, BlountArrow. You can definitely use pins to kill the larvae. It causes much less stress to the plant than cutting into the plant and removing.

You can beat them with pestacides.. several years ago when I was trying to grow a 1000 pound pumpkin I bought special traps for them with a pheremone in the trap.. they worked pretty good IIRC..

Sounds like a good route that I have not tried. I know the moths are the beginning of the cycle. Do you know where you bought the traps ?? I would like to try them next year.

here ya go! http://www.greatlakesipm.com/readytousekits.html


Well, I just purchased (2) traps for both my gardens so I'll let you know how it works. I'm a little late I realize, but I went ahead and did a second planting so hopefully I can protect these or just use it next year and buy more lure, etc.

I think this is what happened to my spaghetti squash, but I didn't know that's what it was. The whole thing just started looking sick all of a sudden. I'll have to go inspect the bases.
