Squash plants require pollination . Are your flowers that are falling Male or female? Have you tried hand pollination? there are many videos on youtube that will take you right through the process. We grow inside so must rely totally on hand pollination we have had very good results by simply taking a male flower (thin stem no squash) removing the petals and rubbing it on center stigma of the female flower (the one w/ a little squash between the plant and the flower). hope this helps.

Lindsay and Tony, thank you both for your valuable tips.

I watched few videos on hand and brush pilination. But my squash seems to have only male flowers no females !! Is that normal ?

Yes, the male flowers often develop first and then you should start to see the females
