Good evening everybody,

I just found a really effective method to capture and kill cucumber beetles.

- Timing, the most important factor: When your garden is in total DARKNESS.
- Tools: Take a work light or headlamp (the latter would free your hands) with you, and maybe a jacket if it's really cool outside. And of course your hands and patience.
- Light the infested veggies (to me cucumbers), search for those yellow-black devils. The bugs will not flee away like they react during the daytime. They would just slowly crawl in the light. Then you could easily capture and kill them. I've just wiped out more than 40 bugs within 15 minutes.

Have a good night.

Richard
