My Squash leaves are spotted with white mold or mildew spots (about the size of a fly). Everything else looks good. What causes this, and how do I get rid of it? Thank you.

It sounds like you have powdery mildew. This is common in vining plants. Neem oil is helpful. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/powdery-mildew-homemade-and-organic-remedies.htm
