ACK – What’s happening to my cucumber plant?

In the last few days my cucumber plant has changed! Some of the leaves have large white area's that seem to be really thin... almost see-through. Is this a fungus or maybe some kind of insect attack? I live in zone 7-8ish... and none of my other garden vegetable plants (including another cucumber) don't have any sign of this tragedy. Do you think I can do anything to help it? I am attaching a few pictures.

    Hi,  I seem to be having a similar problem with my cucumber plants.. I’ve been told that it could be a bacterial wilt caused by the cucumber beetle.. The best advise I got was to start the plants late sometime in mid June to avoid these beetles from spreading this bacterial desease wilt.. If the problem still persists then it is best to spray with some sort of organic insecticide… For me, I will try to avoid this problem next year.This was the first time Ive ever tried to grow cucumbers.. Do you see any bugs on your cucumber plants that are yellow with black stripes, if you do then they are the culprit in spreading this wilting desease. But I could be wrong in your case .. Hope that helped.. Good luck..
