Be sure to examine plants for signs of damage and make sure you vary the times you check for infestation. Different varieties of insects are active at different times of the day.
There are many ways for you to protect your crops: through pest-repellents, traps or just simply picking the pests off plants. If the foliage on your watermelon curls, puckers and turns yellow, your plants may have aphids.
