Re: Zucchini Bugs ???

sounds like squash or pumpkin bugs. had them bad a couple years ago. they really like the underside of the leaves. I mixes about a 1/4 cup of dish soap in my 1 gal sprayer and sprayed them with that. worked pretty good.

Sevin dust...sevin spray. Squashes the squash bugs who will infest your plants and kill.
