Squash Bugs Control

The best time to control squash bugs, along with almost all pests, is early by removing the eggs. Do this by rubbing them off the underside of the leaves, or cut out the section of the leaf they're on. The next best time to control them is when the nymphs are small. Adults are difficult to kill with pesticide, and pesticides are less effective in temperatures over 80 degrees.

Thoroughly destroy or remove all crop residues in the fall, and rotate your crops - in order to minimize the chance for re-introduction to next year's crop.
