Try hand-pollinating using a cotton swab from the male flowers to the female blossoms and see if that helps until You get more pollinators.

<![CDATA[Re: Whats wrong with my cucumbers?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/653/whats-wrong-with-my-cucumbers?commentid=1977 I agree, there's a problem with the pollination. For my garden, I got hooked on using Mason Bees. They're local to the Americas (unlike honey bees) and don't sting. Just put up some housing near flowers to attract wild ones or order some cocoons online. I would suggest doing some reading on the subject first but once they're established, you'll see them every year.
