Trap squash bugs by laying out cardboard, newspaper or 1-by-4-inch boards around the plants. Squash bugs will congregate under the boards at night and can be destroyed in the morning by sparying with soapy water (32 oz. hot water and 1 3/4 cups of dish soap). Inspect squash plants daily and spray all bugs/eggs found.
"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"
Vinegar: Rid your garden of bugs and aphids by spraying your plants with a solution of vinegar and water. 1 cup vinegar to a gallon of water. Vinegar is a natural pesticide so you can get rid of many critters by using a solution mixed with water. (I just hope it doesn't kill the roses.)
