IME, the only thing you can do is hand pick them and watch for eggs. The eggs are bronze-color dots on the bottom of the leaves. They're usually in groups together. I contemplated paying a neighbor kid a nickel a bug.
Sevin will kill squash bugs from what I gather, but I'm not comfortable using it in my garden since it isn't an organic chemical. Honestly, they were so bad here that I stopped putting any gourds in for a couple of years. I haven't done any in the same plot since and had a few in a different plot this year but not enough to completely obliterate my cukes, squash, and luffa.
