Another Fearsome Bug

Well, this probably isn’t good. I found this bug on one of my yellow crookneck squash plants earlier this week. Still, I was in denial. Maybe it’s just a single bug passing through? Maybe it’s not a squash bug at all? (Actually, when I looked it up, it seems that stink bugs do look quite a lot like squash bugs. Here’s more about squash bugs and how to recognize them from the University of California.) And then today I found squash bug eggs on the same plant. (See bottom photo.) Yes, we may have a problem here.

    • I just wish the bug eggs tasted good. They kind of look like caviar. Imagine if they tasted like caviar too. Everyone would grow squash just for the squash bug eggs!
