I don't know about the moths, but white powder-like film sounds like powdery mildew. That occurs when warm weather and high humidity happen. You can spray the plants with a fungicide, or soapy water. I don't know where Payette is ( I lived across the river from Lewiston), but I've never thought of Idaho as being humid. Have you had lots of rain?

I agree
I never had worms on squash.
Are moths/butterflies white white about the size of a 50 cent piece. Cabbage loopers wont hurt squash. Pic would help.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
