How do I reduce squash blossom drop?

In the past I have had issues with the blooms from my flowers dropping off and no vegetables growing?

Keep plants as dry as possible and be sure to rotate crops in the same soil so that no member of the vegetable family is planted in the same spot for at least four years. Keep the fruit supported, using wood or some other natural support to prevent rot from the ground.
