Answer: It sounds like you may have squash bugs on your plants. These brown bugs usually live in groups on the undersides of leaves. A few here and there aren't a problem, but if you notice leaves starting to die and get chewed up, then you need to control these bugs. Spray with rotenone or sabadilla dust as soon as you see them early in the season to control squash bugs. Also, clean up the garden well in fall and keep it healthy by adding lots of organic matter each season..
