New cucumber woes

I just put out some new new cucumber seedlings last week in hopes of getting a second crop. The plants seem to be getting established quite easily but yesterday I noticed that the leaves are being damaged by something. What can I do to stop whatever this in its tracks?

Here are a couple of photos of the leaves -- note the white squiggles all over.

Here's another shot from the underside of the leaf; you can see how transparent its become.

Any and all help in identifying and curing this will be heartedly appreciated.

Thank you.

Looks like leaf miner to me. Practically all my plants are affected by it.. I've just been mostly ignoring it. It's not out of hand or anything.

RE: New cucumber woes

Mine ended up looking like that. I didn't know what happened w/ mine, either. I am getting a couple of new vines out right now. I don't know where you live but I live in scPA and we had a lot of heat waves this summer -- maybe more than any summer. Probably the vines were just stressed out by the terrible heat. I'm thinking I might try some new cukes myself! I heard that most veggies really love the rains w/ the tstorms! We weren't getting that many tstorms lately, just some rains about once a week. Don't know what your pest would be.
