I have always just kept right on putting the grounds around the plants, after they're larger not just the stems but just spread them around. I have pulled maybe 2 squash bugs off my squash this year.
It is also a good idea to look over the leaves to check for the eggs. The eggs will be easily spotted, but again I haven't had any (save the 2) on my squash this year.
