Any of yall have suggestions as how to fight them? Just as soon as my squash, cukes, and melons crack the crust and pop through, the buggers are all over them. :( :eek: They will probably go away if it ever gets warmer. The only thing I know is to dust the ground where the seeds are planted.

I am gonna do something after this front moves through. I have a spray I can use, and I may dust the ground where the seeds are planted.

That Admire is good stuff, it is a systemic that will usually last till around harvest. you do a ground drench at or shortly after transplanting.

I used Admire years ago on tobacco. It does a good job. Tobacco transplants were sprayed a few days before planting, and they were protected from aphids and flea beetles.
