      Getting rid of SQUASH BUGS —– 2 tablespoons blue (original) Dawn detergent to 2 cups of water. Using cheap spray bottle, spray under leaves and right on the bugs. They die within a minute because the soap covers their body and they don’t breathe anymore. If you find a bunch of little eggs on a leaf just rub with straight detergent. That also stops them . I use this mixture on cucumbers and peppers.
