I discovered spider mites infesting my vegetables about a week ago. I had no idea what they were. I saw these thick white webs all over certain leaves and the leaves began to turn a speckled white. I didn't even notice the tiny bugs at first. the bugs are very tiny, like a little speck. I had to cut off some of the dead leaves. I searched and thankfully found a mix you can make with canola oil, water, and a little soap. I painstakingly sprayed every leaf front and back for about three nights in a row. They're gone now, but I did lose all my cucumber plants :(
