Tired of Cucumber Beetles? So am I!

Eleanor H.

We seem to have an early abundance of cucumber beetles and I wasn't about to pay what vendors want for disposable cucumber beetle traps - so violà my version of a reusable trap. I attached a plastic tent peg ($0.28) to a plastic food service basket ($0.60), coated the basket with sticky stuff and within mere moments of "installation" it already has an occupant!

For a bit over $10 I have twelve!
And instead of tent pegs, if I run a fiberglass pole through a couple baskets arranged at various heights they'd be helpful near trellised squash vines.
