Put 2 inch conduit on several plant today. Trying to keep bore beetles away????? If it works I think I could put the seed in the pipe first let them grow. I pushed the pipe 1/4 to 1/2 inch in the ground. From what I’ve seen they get in at the base where it hits the ground?

I will definitely be following your experiment - last year the the SVB killed every squash/zucchini plant we had. This year I have been injecting BT at the base and every 2" up to 6" (2-cc's per shot) - and so far so good, but if your idea works - it would make my plan MUCH easier. We have a pretty small raised bed garden - about 18 squash/zucchini plants in a couple of the beds.

Please keep us updated on your experiment.

I will definitely be following as well. I've tried just about everything but the SVB kills mine every year. I stopped planting it.


In your darkest hour when the demons come, call on me brother and we'll fight them together.

As a follow-up.

perhaps once the squash gets a longer vine - I wonder if it would be worth a try to wrap plastic wrap or aluminum foil (poke pinholes in them) at the top, to close the gap and prevent the SVB from crawling down the vine?

I can try foil on a few. I put a few solo and McDonald’s cups on a few bigger plants today the wider tops made it easy. I have 6-8 plants with nothing on them.

A moth lays eggs on a leaf and then when the caterpillars hatch they eat the leaf and then onto the rest of the plant.

I’ll keep an eye out for the eggs if they are big enough to see. I was told the larvae hatches from eggs on the leaf falls to the ground and makes it way to the vine at the top of the ground. I have no idea. The vine borers get me every year.

I’m believe they are inside the stem. Try rooting the squash in several places along the main stem. If the borers get in a section, cut it out. Hopefully the plant can keep feeding from the other areas that rooted. Not sure if that makes sense.

Nope didn’t help. Neem oil seems to slow them but them dudes are hell on a garden. The heat is taken its toll on them now.

I hate to hear that - I was VERY, VERY hopeful this was a solution to the SVB problem.

We've had a GREAT return on our squash and zucchini after being pretty diligent about injecting them with BT every 7-10 days.
