Pollination needed to grow squash

Q. All of my plants in the garden are doing well, except for yellow squash and zucchini. Instead of being prolific producers, as they have been in the past, they are slow growing and the initial fruits are growing only about an inch or so before they are just withering on the vine. I had some trouble last year with the zucchini that I chalked up to lack of pollination, but my squash have never had problems. Any advice?
