I don’t know if this is just a coincidence, but I have one squash plant that currently has no bug issues. Not that it is a major problem with my other squash plants, but they have bugs and this one doesn’t. This plant happens to be growing in the middle of a creeping thyme patch. Now I should say, it is a different variety than the others, but in the past, bugs have not discriminated between varieties. They tend to like them all.
So, my conclusion is this. Somehow, the creeping thyme is either disguising or discouraging the bugs from going after this squash plant. I think it’s worth experimenting with more in the future with squash to see if this theory holds true.
I don’t know what variety this is because it was a volunteer.
