My big pest is blacktail deer, but I have solved that by tying my labrador retreiver on a run cable next to my garden. My little pest is cucumber beetles,, and I am still researching a solution for permantly ending their appetites.What is the most difficult pest you deal with in your garden? I know this will vary by region, but I'd like to hear what people are having the most trouble with.
Squash bugs. They have gotten a foot hold in my garden, I've lost a pumpkin plant and 3/4 of my zucchini plants. I've picked the eggs (bottom of the leaves) and sprayed all that I have seen with soapy water (which kills them). All that and they still are winning the battle. I spotted a couple on my cukes as well. Last year I only got one cuke before they killed the plants.
I cannot find any means to get rid of white flies without using harsh chemicals that will effect the food we eat out of the greenhouse. Does anyone have a safe method of getting rid of them. Also aphids. They are a nightmare.I HATE white flies!!! It's almost impossible to get rid of them.
