Last spring everything I planted that was green was being eat'n by something and found out it was pill bugs from the compost I mixed in. Are they ust eating the leaves or going down to the roots?

Cucumber beetles are tough. The really nasty thing is they transmit viruses to plants. There are a few back threads about them. Have you found any information ?

They are just eating the leaves. They are leaving some eggs which I am trying to remove. They are supposed to eat cucumbers and melons. I have been using a car vac to suck them off the leaves. But there are more when I get home. One thing though, the whine of the vac seems to aggravate them and they start flying off the plants when I use it.
