    great picture of a real pest
    I had a total wipe out of my squash plants
    they seem to eat the squash also
    I did not use pesticides and am concerned about the many that may appear next year because of it
    is there anything I can do at this point?
    thanks in advance for the help

    Handpicking or vacuuming is an option. Try spinosad organic insecticide.
