I have struggled over the past few years growing cucumbers, zucchini and melons. Either cucumber beetles or squash bugs have attacked my plants that looked great one day and the next day started to wilt. For those of you who have struggled with this problem, I would love to hear from you as to what has worked for you.
One website said to Spray with Neem for squash bugs.
Neem oil, a natural pesticide, has been shown to effectively control squash
bugs. Spray it on all leaf and stem surfaces according to label directions.
I purchased Diva cucumber seeds so that I can keep the plants covered with a light row cover almost all summer. This particular variety does not need pollination by insects.
Another suggestion was to plant the above seeds later in the season--late May.
Love to hear what has worked for you or should I just give up trying to grow the above.
