I am having a similar issue
I am having a similar issue with lack of pollinators. You mention that if there is a lack of pollinators, to hand pollinate. However, that assumes there are male flowers, and I do not have any on my crooked yellow squash (only females). I had one on my zuchinni, and used that to hand pollinate my crooked yellow squash (I used my finger). I have several questions- is variety cross pollination effective, and what do I do if I don't get anymore males? Should I cut off the females so they aren't taking resources from the plant? Is using my finger effective- or should I not consider them pollinated? Guess I will have to wait and see. The one male flower from zuchinni plant fell off last night in a storm, I think I will try and reuse pollen from inside to continue in variety cross pollination.
