Tiny light spots on chili plants / holes in one
I've done a lot of searching around but I'm not sure what the issue is.
Quick background: Just recently started growing anaheim, cayenne, and habanero plants from seeds. I live in the Phoenix, Arizona area.
I have about a dozen plants looking pretty decent, around 8 inches high, but some of them (a growing number) are starting to have these tiny white spots on some of the leaves. I have been unable to see any pests on them. Here is what the leaves look like:
Are these from spider mites? If so, is there any easy way to get rid of them?
I'm also having an issue with only one plant. Some bugs appear to be eating it. Here's what it looks like:
Any idea what they might be? Once again, I haven't seen any bugs on them when I've checked. I bring all the plants in on most nights since the lows still drop into the 40s.
