Abstract

Cucurbit crops, especially muskmelon and cucumber, attract cucumber beetles, which vector bacterial wilt: Erwinia tracheiphila, causing significant crop losses. High beetle densities are associated with high bacterial wilt incidence, which usually occurs during the first stages of plant establishment. Growers of organic muskmelon need effective ways to manage the cucumber beetle/bacterial wilt complex.
