Squash vine borers have been terrible for me this year.  I've removed a few with mixed results.  I may have gotten to some of the plants too late.  I'm going to try planting my squash later in the season next year to see if that helps.  Thanks for the great video!

Thanks for sharing this!  I love squash and have had borers before and just lost the plants.
