thanks for the quick reply. I was afraid of that. I have been picking them off and squishing them and will continue to do so. everything else in the garden (it is a small garden-25’x25′)seems to be fine, but i am afraid the bacterial wilt will spread to the eggplant and squash. What I don’t understand is, if I plant more cukes, why won’t I just be feeding the little green/black beetles more treats?
