Hi everyone,

My cucumbers have a spotted powdery look on the leaves, and the cucumber itself is being distroyed as well (like powdery track marks). Does anyone know what that is? I know that the Japanese Beatles are attacking a lot of the other leaves, but I'm not sure if they are the ones killing my cucumbers, or if it's something else.

I am not an expert but it sounds like powdery mildew. I say this because I had a case of it this year and have been fighting it. I found this neat site that has some "home remedies" and have been spraying my cukes, zukes, and squash every 3 days ask suggested it seems to be helping.
