    Will these beneficial insects help with squash/stink bugs?

    Thank you…

    Trichogramma will not help with squash or stink bugs. They are specific to Lepidoptera which are leaf eaters in their caterpillar stage. Examples of such pests include corn earworm, cutworm, cabbage looper, armyworm, borers and codling moth caterpillar. I’ve included a link that should help.

    Squash Bugs

    Good luck!
