Down With the Little Buggers!
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Remember how just a week or so ago I was reflecting on how "Expectation is the mother of all frustration"? It seems That I was really expecting to have a bumper crop of zucchini and squash, and due to my massive infestation of bugs, I am really going to be frustrated instead.
These squash bugs (more accurately termed Cucumber Beetles) are fierce and ferocious, virile and voracious...
This USED to be a rather healthy young vegetable squash plant!
And did I mention that there are a lot of them?
This is a closer view of their unbridled enthusiasm in corrupting my beautiful squash bloom... you can see them carousing and eating and generally misbehaving outrageously!
These photos don't tell even 1% of the story, either!
No wonder I'm bugicidal!!!
Kill! Kill! Kill!
Die! Die! Die!
