Be on the look out for this moth if you have squash. This is the Squash Vine Borer moth, as you can tell it looks very similar to a wasp. It lays its eggs at the base of a branch. The larvae then will eat through the branch and into the main stem. The only way to control them is to apply an insecticide to kill the adult moth. We recommend using a Spinosid product or a Bifenthrin product.
