I am new this year. My leaves were beginning to look dull and I spotted quite a few aphids and I found one cutworm. I put Down triazicide for cutworm and insecticide soap for aphids. Will the plant improve and how often should I spray. Sure appreciate this site.My largest pumpkins is 122 ott but I have 50 more days before I weigh in. It has been 24 days since pollination.

In my opinion, merit spray/drenches are the most effective on aphids. Not good for bees though but some people remove or cover blossoms.
