    Alright yall, I am about to lose my mind. All of my squash, zuchini, cantalopes and watermelon have been destroyed. They get these little green worm, caterpillar looking bugs. they are light green, some with darker spots. They eat the leaves to nothing, and then tunnel through the vines or into the vegtables. I have used powder seven dust, as well as liquid seven dust. Everything is great for a week or two. Plants get nice and big and strong. Then BAM, they are back again destroying everything. I dont want to use seven dust every other week and grow a tail after eating the veggies. There has to be a better way, or a companion plant that these bugs hate. Any help would be greatly, greatly apprciated.

    Have ya tried BT? Bacillus Thuriengeisis. Put it on the leaves and it messes with the bugs guts. Keeps the caterpilars off the tomatoes.
