Squash Not Getting Fruit

My Delicata squash blossoms fall off and leave a stem only. No fruit, just a stem. I am in a high wind area. My Butternut squash have lots of growing fruit and they are in the same area. I fertilize organically, only. Do I need to hand pollinate? I grew all my squash from seeds in the same growing medium and they are grown in the same soil mix. What gives?

I would try hand pollinating. Wouldn't hurt.
I have had to hand pollinate all my squash and cucumbers this year.

Thanks Tracey, I have to hand polinate my corn as well. This would be the easiest fix.
