Abstract

Cucurbit crops, especially muskmelon and cucumber, attract cucumber beetles, which vector bacterial wilt, causing significant crop losses. The striped and spotted cucumber beetles are the only reported vectors that transmit bacterial wilt, caused by the bacteria Erwinia trachephila. High beetle densities are associated with high bacterial wilt incidence.
