Abstract

Cucurbit crops, especially muskmelon, are difficult to grow due to bacterial wilt (Erwinia tracheiphila). This disease is vectored by the cucumber beetle, both spotted and striped. The highest risk period for disease infection is early in the season when adult beetles emerge from overwintering in the ground and begin feeding on young cucurbit plants.

Keywords: Plant Pathology and Microbiology
