Interplanting Beans/Cucumbers to repel beetles

Post  Roseinarosecity on 5/15/2018, 9:48 pm

Today I read this and I thought I would share.

"Interplant cucumbers and beans to repel cucumbers beetles and prevent the wilt diseases they carry. Also plant Cucurbita lagenaria gourds as trap plants for cucumber beetles. Plant potatoes to repel squash bugs." from Gardeninginla blog, written by Master Gardener, Yvonne Savio.  She worked in the Botany and Vegetable Crops Cooperative Extension Departments at the University of California, Davis.

I'm not planting cucumbers this year but I am planting watermelon, in the Cucurbit family.  I'm going to try it.  Has anyone given this a try? 

A couple of years ago I had Cucumber beetles in my cucumbers and last year they were in my watermelon.

Oh, yes, we have them.  The first time I encountered a few were at the parking lot of the Santa Rosa Heirloom Festival.  I thought, "oh what a cute lady bug with an unusual color."  My sister said it wasn't a ladybug but a cucumber beetle.

I have had them in my Armenian cucumbers, so I stop planting them.
