Cucumber plant vines dying

Asked September 2, 2016, 3:44 AM EDT

My cucumber plants suddenly started dying. The plants appear to be dying one vine at a time. What could be causing this?

Thank you...

I can't really tell from these photos. It mostly looks like spider mite damage to me. But, there are a lot of cucumber diseases as well.

At this point, I would recommend pulling out your vines that are showing damage and replanting for the fall. But I would put something else in that spot and plant your cucumbers somewhere different so that you can have some crop rotation benefits.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
