What's wrong with my zucchini?

Question details

My zucchini plants are looking wilted. They have a mildewy like substance on the flowers, then they die. I haven't had many zucchini. I have been watering them because it is so dry and hot. Am I doing more harm than good? Also, I have a LOT of male flowers. What gives? (Some of the zucchini have rotted on the vine.)Thank you!
