I hate squash bugs!

I checked the winter squash and found a explosion of squash bugs. They are by far the biggest problem here on the farm. We did fairly well with the summer squash by planting with lots of stinky herbs. When we planted the winter squash I just did not think to plant the herbs also. I have tried to keep these in check but the rainy days kept me inside and they really blossomed. There is not much we can do to to kill these guys so I will pick what I can and then burn the field. I really hate squash bugs!
