How to Prevent and Control Cucumber Beetles 5 Ways

Cucumber beetles can be a real pest with cucumbers. They plague gardeners and cause tons of damage. We have managed to control them and prevent them for many years totally organically!

The first time I grew cucumbers we got the beetles, they decimated all the plants. I did some research and the next time I planted radishes all around the base of the cucumber mounds like little soldiers shoulder to shoulder guarding the plants. Worked like a charm. I was so pleased, not one beetle! This year so far so good.
