That's amazing!
Thanks for all your help. I try not to spray, so I pick off the bugs in my garden by hand. I'm fairly new at this rural country lifestyle and rather uneducated regarding insect species. I mistook squash bugs for spined soldier bugs... I left them alone and they destroyed my plants. Tough to differentiate without help! Thanks again!
