Squash Bugs

I've had some of the prettiest little squashes this year.  Beautiful green and yellow zephyr squash and a dark green and bicolor pattypan squashes.  I guess I've been so busy taking flower pictures that I've forgotten I grow veggies as well because tonight I can only find one picture of these pretty pattypans.

Squash plants never last long enough around here though.  Between the diseases that take them down and the damage inflicted by squash bugs we only have a few weeks before our squash plants look like this...

I was reminded a few nights ago that we definitely have pests that inflict nearly as much damage as blister beetles.  Squash bugs.
