Abstract

Cucurbit crops, especially muskmelon and cucumber, are difficult to grow in the Midwest because of bacterial wilt, causing significant crop losses. Striped and spotted cucumber beetles transmit Erwinia tracheiphila, which causes bacterial wilt. High beetle densities often occur during the first stages of plant establishment.
