Squash Bug Hunter In Action

Tuesday evening, to prepare for my post about watering my containers, I sat the camera on the kitchen table just inside our patio doors.

While I was focused on finding squash bugs, my wonderful husband was focused on taking pictures of me by the yellow squash and zucchini plants.

He even got a photo of me holding a ring of duct tape to lift squash bug eggs and catch those fast squash bug babies.

I never know what I'll find when I download photos from my camera.


  1. My husband does the same to me! I hope you have a very nice weekend.

  2. Tell him he did a good job of sharing you in your garden.

  3. Very well done. He's showing interest, I guess. Next thing you know, he'll be killing the bugs for you.

  4. And you're wearing your wonderful garden hat. I need to upgrade my hat, it would be embarrassing if anyone saw me in it.

  5. Now that is a new one for duck tape for me. Excellent!

    Must be a trait of good husbands


    At times he does help me with the squash bugs. We like to drown them out from the straw occassionally and he's quick to grab them.

    I love that hat. Don't know what I'll do when it needs replaced.

    Give it a try. It works!

    Yea, I love him!

    It is hard to get those by yourself.
