Squash vine borer is active, with several reports from commercial producers and home gardeners. This pest often goes unnoticed until their larvae have done considerable damage to vines of summer squash, winter squash, and pumpkins. While UK Entomology is not trapping for this pest this year, previous studies have shown that the adults are active from mid-June until the end of the summer.
