In late summer and fall, cucumber beetles – and similar corn rootworms – are common visitors to squash and cucumber flowers. They are not pollinators, but actually eat the petals, and sometimes the plant foliage. The cucumber beetles are important pests because they also can transmit diseases. To learn more about all of these beetles, go to the MG website at http://wimastergardener.org and select the new article on Cucumber Beetles._____________________________________________________
