yellow/black garden pest

I think it is called a squash borer. Not sure but they destroyed my zuchinni and other squash one year. Then I read that they get into the vine and a perfectly healthy plant is ruined. Also went to my cucumbers. I took the ortho sevin dust and put into old jar with holes punched in lid. Dusted tops and bottom of leaves before veggies were on...I wore gloves and turned leaves over. It really helps. Nothing worse than working hard, watching plant grow and prosper and than lose it to bugs or varmits! Good luck, shari
