These small light green worms (hard to see in the picture are laying eggs in my squash blossoms. I am really struggling with way too much heavy rain right now. The squash blossoms are just melting off the vine. I can't decide whether it is because of this worm or because of the rain. I bought some heavy plastic and have covered the bed. I applied BT yesterday but found this one this morning. I hate to spray directly into the flowers. I have yet to get a single bloom to produce a fruit. I am very frustrated.

Any ideas?Rolling Eyes

If I had to make a wild guess, I would say pickle worms.

I know it's an old post, but in case someone else finds it looking to identify their similar pest problem:
It's not a pickleworm because it's got stripes instead of spots, but it might be the closely-related melonworm (Diaphania hyalinata):
    http://entomology.ifas.ufl.edu/creatures/veg/leaf/melonworm.htm

The speckled green fruitworm caterpillar also has a white stripe, and will feed on flowers/blossoms, but the more translucent look of the caterpillar in the photo makes me think it's a melonworm.

The orange balls aren't eggs, they are frass. (A.K.A. poop. The caterpillar turns into the melonworm moth; the adult moth lays eggs, the caterpillar does not.)
