What is the Cucumber Beetle?
Cucumber Beetles are a major problem wherever squash, cucumbers, watermelon, pumpkin, and other cucurbits are grown. Beetles can kill or severely stunt seedlings and on older plants damage stems and fruits. The beetle is well known for transmitting bacterial wilt, and some viruses. Gummy stem blight is also associated with beetle damage. Larvae feed on roots reducing yield. California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) approved.
The cucumber beetle lure has been specifically developed so that it can be used to trap multiple species of cucumber beetles.
Striped cucumber (Acalymma vittatum),
Western striped (A. trivittatum),
Spotted cucumber (Diabrotica undecimpunctata howardi),
Western spotted cucumber beetle (D. undecimpunctata undecimpunctata).
The cucumber beetle lure attracts for 3-4 weeks, depending on the temperature
