A brain wave got me to use a mosquito electric bat on my non-pesticide muskmelon. An army of pumpkin beetles had invaded my crop - these are among the most dangerous pests of cucurbits.
The electric bat was very effective and I killed no less than a couple of hundred pumpkin beetles in less than a half hour! My people will now scout for more of them a few minutes each day.
Innovation award of the year - anyone?
