Squash bugs!

Surround:

Robert - This is the product that was demonstrated at the year 200 
Mid-Atlantic Biodynamic Food and Farming Conference. It was used on 
apple trees that year.

My experience with surround is that it is inadequate and 
inappropriate with a fast growing crop like squash. You'd have to 
spray every week, for sure, to prevent the possibility of early 
bacterial contamination by cucumber or squash beetles.

It also needs to be reapplied after rain -or- overhead watering to 
remain effective.

It's great in trees!
