    What bugs now?

      Anyone know what these black specks are all over the zucchini leaves. It looks like coffee grounds. I already have aphids and hornworms that I'm battleing. Just wondering if they are related or something new to work on.

          Hi venturesbygrace, Based on the existing pest issues you describe (and the surrounding leaf damage in the photos), I am fairly sure it's poop from either a worm or caterpillar. I tried to completely eliminate "insect eggs"... Unfortunately, the photos you provided were too fuzzy (when zoomed-in) to get a clear look at the black speck detail.
