Winter squash fruit turn yellow and die before blossoming

Asked July 29, 2016, 8:19 AM EDT

Hello, my winter squash female flowers turn yellow and full off before blooming. It happens every year. Could you please give me an idea what could be, what causing it. Thank you for your response

Female squash flowers will drop off is they are not pollinated. Try hand pollinating your flowers.The following site has instructions on how to hand pollinate your squash plants.
