Pumpkins & Squash still have gnat-type flying bugs and more little black eggs

Gardening

9/2/2020 – Despite two sprayings of malathion the little black flying bugs are still all over the pumpkin and squash blooms and there appears to be more of the small shiny black eggs clustered on the leaves.

Mixed Bug-No-More at 5 oz/gallon and sprayed them. Within 15 minutes or so they were moving a lot less and appeared to be fewer in number.

The malathion problem could have been it was some I mixed a week or two ago.
