I use coffee grounds. Grounds have kept my eggplant from the flea bettles and my squash from squash bugs. Apparently they hate coffee grounds. Just take your used coffee grounds and place around the main stems. Vine bore worms are another story. The egg is laid on the stem usually. When they hatch they burrow into the squash and can destroy it almost overnight. Some folks cut the bottom out of a yogurt container or cut a toilet paper roll in half and place it about an inch or so in the ground. This is suppose to protect the stem from the egg laying moth. The moth resembles a wasp but is actually a moth. Hope this helps in your gardening endeavors.
