The Q&A Archives: Squash Bugs

Question: Hi, i have squash bugs in my garden how do i get rid of them?
Thanks Deidra

Answer: Try handpicking the pests or using a permethrin based insecticide (Hi-Yield Garden, Pet & Livestock Dust, Ortho Bug-B-Gon Multi-Purpose Garden Dust, Green Thumb Multipurpose Garden and Pet Dust). In the fall, remove and destroy the plant debris so the larvae cannot overwinter.
