Stalk borer my friend. Never had them in weed but they have kicked my Cucumbers and Squashes ass.
If you kill them before they do too much damage your plant will be okay
Need to check all your stalks especially close to the ground.

Well then try some cal/mag
Well I'm gonna check them out, see how bad it is. I do see two colas bent a little so I'm going there first. Just a little reading these things come from moths, I remember seeing these this year.

A sharp knife can kill the fkers if you get to them soon enough before they have fked up the plants. I deal with those mother fkers every yr growing Cucumbers and squash.
