Squash Bugs

I have one known enemy and that is the squash bug. My first year was bug free. Last year is when I first discovered the little buggers. But it wasn't a huge deal. I still had a good crop. This year was a huge difference. It started when I planted the pumpkin plants. (I won't be doing that again). After about a month I started to see more and more of them. More then I could pick and kill. They were mating faster then I could keep up.

Today I pulled up all my plants. Just couldn't take it anymore. It is very unlikely I will plant anymore squash or squash family plants again.
