I am so sick of these things. They are eating all of my blossoms and burrowing threw blossom into the vegetables. Causing total destruction on my zucchini, cantaloupe, yellow squash and watermelon. To make the a worst pest than Hornworms now found on the stem portion of some tomatoes. UGH. How can I get rid of them picking doesn't help as I ruin the blossom prying them open to check

@MultitaskMary my brother made me a believer in diatomaceous earth ..if watched him use it for years and not have an issue with pest ..I have uses it for 2 years with no issue as well...when I pull up my ground i mix it in with my soil and also sprinkle it around the plant ..you should have no problem with crawling insects I also use a marigold spray for anything that flies
