Re: Squash bug eggs
I mixed up some palmolive dish soap with some cool water into my sprayer and found the first set of little critters that were crawling near the eggs. A couple squirts and the bugs were dead instantly. According to one web site dish soap/water is ok as long as your soap doesnt use triclosan, which I believe makes the soap antibacterial, and also can harm the plants.
I'll keep an eye on the plants to make sure they are ok, but the bugs died quick!
