Yep that is the stuff. I have been using "Neem oil extract" in a spray bottle. It seems to help but I have not succedded it eliminating the mess.

Darn. And that squash plant is huge. I'll do the best I can with it for the rest of this season. This is my first garden and I am making notes. Next season I'll be armed with a few more weapons.

weak Baking soda and water mix and/or a weak milk spray is also supposed to help.
Receipes are somewhere in the forum.

Does powdery mildew wipe off, or is it part of the leaf? Some of my squash leaves have white blotches but it seems to be the color of the leaves and doesn't wipe off.

I like the baking soda idea. Sounds like it is to akalize, is that right? Would a weak vinegar and water spritz help if it's mildew?

I cut off a couple of leaves and sprayed the rest with the baking soda, soap, and water mixture. I did not have any of the Neem that some posts talked about, but I'll get that next. It is so hot and humid here, I'm sure that is not helping.

vinegar will KILL almost any plant material it comes in contact with. Better know what you are doing before using it. I am a rookie but please check before using vinegar.

Here is a link for powdery mildew. I would first remove leaves that have it, but not all the leaves! Then spray all the plant, and plants that might be close to it.

Don't use the vinegar solution on anything except for strawberries, sw. & white potatoes, tomatoes. I don't think it will help pwd mildew, but acid loving plants love a little vinegar in the watering can!
