Striped Cucumber Beetles

Post  mijejo on 6/10/2011, 7:43 pm

I may have an infestation of striped cucumber beetles. Does anyone have suggestions for ridding my garden of these unwelcome guests?

Glad I could help, I've only seen one striped in my garden, but have seen many spotted ones, I'm still spraying and smashing. I tried catching a few, to feed them to the chickens, but they fly away when I dump them out, so no flying bugs for the chickens, I do hand them the squash bugs though, they love them. The chickens sit on the top rung of their little ladder/rooster thingy (where they sit and roost) and watch us in the garden, just hoping we bring them a bug, but bugs have been on the decline lately.
