My gardening center recommended Captain Jack's Deadbug Brew powder to help get rid of squash bugs and striped cucumber beetles in my garden (they are tearing up all of my squash, zucchini, and cucumber plants). My concern is this: it doesn't list squash bugs or the cucumber beetles as insects that it will kill on the label. Also, I don't want something that will hurt the bees and I cannot find if this will do so or not.
Has anyone used this product and can answer my questions?

I never heard of it. But you gave me a leed to try next year. I've given up on my garden this yr because of those bugs.
I hope you had better luck than me.
Tree mail me if you did !

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

@mizshelli Did you try this? Reviews on Amazon say to use it the way you'd use neem--after dusk, since it can kill any bug that eats it for up to three hours after application. Otherwise, most seem to think it works. I'm looking for effective controls for cucumber beetles every winter, it seems.
