Can one use Sevin selectively
I am a first time gardener with very little experience. I have a small, experimental garden (just three raised beds). I am not thrilled with the idea of using sevin - but I have squash bugs on my crookneck squash plant.
From what I have read my two choices for getting rid of these bugs before they kill my squash plant. Option 1 is to pick them and their eggs off by hand and kill them. That is a highly unlikely event - I am terrified of all things insect like. Option 2 is sevin. Seems to be the only thing that really kills them.
What I want to know is can I use sevin on just that one plant and something less toxic on the other plants? I don't want to harm beneficial insects or any animals and I'm not thrilled with the idea of putting poison on something my family may be eating. But I also don't want to lose my gorgeous squash plant to these ugly bugs.
