    My zucchini were covered with these last year. I hand picked the off, but the bugs are so plentiful and just gross me out. My zucchini was ruined.

    It hasn't been a good season for zucchini here, either. I'm not sure what squash bugs are. Are they in the USA, or in other countries, too?

    The best way to get rid of squash bugs or is to prevent them from getting to your squash in the first place.  Plant borage with your squash to keep squash bugs out of your garden.  Borage is an edible herb that tastes like cucumber.  You can use it in salads to add flavor and texture.
