    I stopped being 'nice' to click beetles when I went to harvest my melons 
a couple of years ago.  Every melon had burrows on their bottom with click 
beetle larva inside.  Now, when I grow melons, when the green fruit is about 
tennis ball size, I place it in a plastic ice cream bucket (upright or on 
its side).  That solves the click beetle damage.
