New to SFG, Had some stinkbugs, got rid of them for the most part, but now I've noticed something else going after my squash. What are they and how do I get rid of them?

I don't know if it's just me but I can't see the picture, hope they aren't squash vine borers...

Looks like centipedes and they typically only eat decaying matter....not causing damage to your healthy plants. It's hard to tell from your pic if that yellowed/decayed object is part of a plant or fallen debris. If your squash was damaged by the squash vine borer (SVB), then these guys could be eating the dead/rotting part of the plant. Here is some more info on them:

If you really feel the need to get rid of them, Sluggo Plus is supposed to do the trick and is mostly organic. But it seems these are good guys in our gardens and should be left alone.

If you're able to get a clear pic of the actual damage being done, someone might be able to give you a better idea.
