I have had a GREAT season so I’ve been a grumbly baby about fall arriving and things slowing down. But earlier today I was whining in the field thinking “at what temperature will these cabbage worms just die already so my hands don’t smell like bug guts for a few months.” Now this cucumber beetle is inside my house. I am so over squishing bugs a gazillion times a day...bring on a cold snap. I’m ready to be done now! #farm365iowa #calicofarm #iowa cityfarm #urbanfarm #organicfarming #cucumberbeetle #cabbageworm #cabbagewormsareevil #pestcontrol #naturalpestcontrol #bugsquishcentral

Hardy Mums have started to bloom and taking pics I captured a yellow spotted cucumber beetle on a bloom 💛 Daibrotica undecimpunctata howardi 💛 These hardy pale chrysanthemum SweetTed planted before his death and it seems so appropriate to find a howardi species of beetle on them 💛 . . . . #hardymums #beetle #yellowbeetle #hardychrysanthemums #chrysanthemum #tattooedgardener #garden #nature #mwwwinter #noticethelittlethings #cucumberbeetle #prettybug #missingmylove #sweetted #mums #diabroticaundecimpunctatahowardi

“Love has its own instinct, finding they way to the heart, as the feeblest insect finds its way to the flower, with a will which nothing can dismay or turn aside.” - Honore De Balzac —This Spotted Cucumber Beetle made for a better photo, but they are jerks. You do not want them anywhere near your garden or plants! They are little nasty, destructive bugs. . . . . . . #cucumberbeetle #flower #flowerstagram #flowerphoto #flowerphotography #bughead #bug #bugs #bugphotography #bugphoto #insectphoto #insectphotography #insect #insects #insectsofinstagram #insect_addict #beetle #beetles #nikon #nikonphotos #nikonphotography #nikonphoto #nikond5600 #nikonartists #naturephotography #nature_good #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_lovers #skyguyshots

Hello there! Unfortunately my understanding is that this is not one of the good guys but instead a spotted cucumber beetle and a threat. I’ve read everything from using a suction vac, to yellow gloves with Vaseline on them. Anyone out there have a tip on getting rid of these little buggers? #gardeningadvice #gardeningtips #cucumberbeetle #beetle

Feeling frazzled this Friday? So does this calendula flower, which is being attacked by a cucumber beetle. Calendula has a long history of traditional herbal uses as a dye, remedy (for digestive issues, detoxification, and treating minor skin wounds and rashes), and edible—the flowers are tasty and used in salads. Apparently this cucumber beetle (Diabrotica spp.) also thought it looked like a good salad and is shredding the petals as it eats. TGIF—may you emerge from your week with your petals intact! #naturesbeauty #spreadnaturelove #herbivory #florivory #calendula #diabrotica #cucumberbeetle #flowers #flowerstagram #flowersofinstagram #igflowers #orangeflower #orange #tgif #frazzledfriday #nofilter

Early rise, see the sun rise. The dynamic reality of nature shows as squash flowers open up with the sun!

I really hate the heat of Summer. I know the benefits of Vitamin D and how amazing the sunlight is supposed to be for you, but I almost have reversed seasonal depression during the Summer months. I can feel it happening around April, when the temperature gets about 80 degrees for the first time and the days start to feel longer. I always gain weight during this time and it takes real mental effort for me to remain positive and happy. Which is also why my nature photography is pretty nonexistent each year between the end of May and October-ish. But because photography is one of my passions and my go-to therapy tool, I miss it greatly. So yesterday, after the rains had cooled things off a bit, I decided it was time for some photo therapy... Look at this tiny little Cucumber Beetle drinking a raindrop. 😍 My heart and spirit instantly feel uplifted. 💕 • • • • • • • • • • • • #magicmacroworld #macro_mood #macro_moves #macro_addict #macro_freaks #bokeh #bokeh_love #bokeh_bliss #bokeh_shotz #bokehphoto #nature #naturegram #naturelove #dofnature #pearlsofbokeh #9vaga_naturemiracles9 #austin #austintx #austinnature #macro_captures #macro_brilliance #macro #magical #ethereal #dreamy #colorful #seasonaldepression #raindrop #september #cucumberbeetle

More nectar gathering in the flower garden. 🐝🌼🌸 Did you know that those really common bugs that look like yellow ladybugs are really cucumber beetles? Although they aren’t good for the garden like ladybugs are, most gardens can support a large number of them without any damage. Our garden is an integral part of the ecosystem, and sometimes that means our plants get munched. But better that than spraying a bunch of insecticide that could kill all of the good bugs, too! . . . #cucumberbeetle #bumblebee #zinnia #nectar #farmlife #gardenlife #nospray #gardenpests #integratedpestmanagement #ipm #gardenecology #humboldtgrown #coexist #growallthethings #naturesbountyinhumboldtcounty #tableblufffarm

#didyouknow - contrary to what they look like, these are not simply green ladybugs. These are cucumber beetles and you do not want them in your vegetable garden! While cucumber beetle larvae feed on cucurbit roots, adult feeding is more damaging to the crop. Adults feed on leaves and can stunt plant growth. Look for holes and yellowing and wilting leaves. Feeding on flowers can reduce fruit production, and direct feeding on fruits causes unattractive scars and pock marks on the fruit, too. Often, the cucumber beetles alone will not kill the plants or cause major damage, but the spread of disease will. Feeding by adult cucumber beetles can spread bacterial wilt disease among cucurbit plants, even when population density is low. Adult cucumber beetles overwinter in weeds, garden debris, and woody areas. The diseases they carry can also overwinter internally, and can be passed onto plants the next spring through fecal matter. . . . Weekly photo challenge: INSECT. . .
