What is eating my squashes??
Dear Garden Blogosphere,
Can you identify what bug is causing this damage? (I'm assuming it's a bug because the leaves are chewed on but there's no stem damage a la birds or rabbits, the latter of which would have to climb over my 1' fencing to get into this bed.)
I have seen earwigs in the soil lately, thanks to numerous recent downpours. Other thoughts? The dreaded squash vine borer?
Most importantly, what can I do about it? Suggestions not including the use of poisonous chemicals would be most appreciated.
Hope to hear from you soon!
