What's in my squash???

Post  sistabelle on 7/18/2011, 2:11 pm

EWWWWWW!!!
I pulled out my beautiful squash plants because they had been hit by squash borers. I opened them up and they were not the fat whitish wormy things! there was a BUNCH of dark brown centipede looking critters! So far I haven't found anything on google. any ideas???

after hours of searching, I found a post about MILLIPEDEs eating squash vines and squash vine roots. It says that millipedes eat organic matter. I know they are millipedes because I found the pics and these bugs looked just like em. MAybe the borer was already there and then the millipedes came in through the holes???

ACK! I'm glad to know you at least figured out what you saw. Sorry about your squashes. Sad
