Can I make this last?

barb_roselover_inJuly 17, 2011

When I was watering my zucchini in a container, I noticed one of those "soldier" bugs walking around on the plant. It still has some zucchinis on the plant. The leaves are looking rather yucky because of the extreme heat. I was wondering if I cut off the yellowed and dead leaves and sprayed with the insecticidal soap, would that help the plant last a little longer? That is the only zucchini that I have. The other squash are the yellow ones. thanks for any hints. - Barb
