What disease/pest do my bean and squash plants have?
My beans have been looking bad for a while, like they’ve been covered by a layer of fine sawdust that won’t rub off. I noticed many leaves are coated in a fine web on the underside and some have very tiny bugs. Many leaves have shriveled and fallen off. My squash plants seem to be suffering the same fate! What is it and can I help my plants?

Thank you for your advice. If I decide to tear out the plants entirely, what can I do to decrease the likelihood that they will return in future crops? I’ve had just incredible bad luck this year in my garden... peas munched to nothing by isopods, tomatoes with mildew and late blight, and now these squash and beans! do I need to give my garden a year off?
