Squash Vine Borer Moth Control- The Borer 2000

After years of fighting the garden pest known as the Squash Vine Borer we have built the ultimate squash plant protection system.

The Moth lays it eggs on the squash vine and the worm burrows inside and eats the plant from the inside out.

The system completely blocks the squash vine borer moth from ever reaching the plant to lay their eggs.
In the south we even have 2 brood cycles a year which makes it even harder to protect the plants.

The system is completely mobile and reusable and has great air flow and provides shade during the summer time heat.

You will have to hand pollinate the squash plants daily since you are going to be blocking all beneficial insects from entering in to the fray.
