garlic as bug repellent?

Hi All,
I have a little organic garden. I am scared to death of squash bugs.
What do you guys think of planting garlic to keep the little buggers away?
How close to the squash do they have to be?
And, will any old garlic do (I don't plan to eat the garlic)?

Try a bird bath, and a feeder near, or in your garden, after the plants have established themselves.

Hi Higgs,
No problem. We have a plethora of public minded servants around these parts that remove any stray cats almost immediately. We don't even have to call for them. They just arrive whenever needed. Clean up after themselves too. And, they are kind cute. We refer to them as "coyotes". :-)
If you don't have any coyotes, cats hate cayenne pepper. Get it on their paw, stick their paw in the mount, make delightful funny screaming noise, run like hell, never come back. (Tofu is God's punishment to humans for domesticating cats: colorless, odorless, tasteless gelatinous goo that sits in your stomach, rots, and give you gas.)
