The Q&A Archives: squash bugs

Question: Squash bugs are sucking the life out of my zucchini and now have invaded my cucurbits-especially the cantaloupes. I pick them off by hand daily but they are getting ahead of me. Any chemical control available? I don't want to use carbaryl as that will kill the bees. How about Spectracide Malathion that I saw at my local Home Depot?
