But they do the same thing to the bindweed. In fact, the great advantage of not using pesticides is the pests can nearly kill every weed. The only requirement is that the weeds must be lightly covered in dirt so the pests can much all night and day 24/7. And this actually works. On bindweed!!! Crazy.

So my choice is to use insecticide and have weed problems... or just cover the weeds with dirt while covering the vines and the pests will switch from eating the pumpkin plants to eating weeds.. And then have I dont have to care about weeds... or pests... or my own health!
