    When I grow cantaloupe, the wire worms, as they are called here (Click 
Beetle Larva), burrow into the melons from the bottom making them unsellable 
and partially inedible.
    I don't have the problem anymore because, now, just as soon as the 
melons are big enough, I insert them into plastic ice cream buckets - it 
works best when the buckets are on their sides.  I tried boards, newspaper, 
metal, all to no avail; the only thing that works (for me) is plastic ice 
cream buckets.
