Hello, forum; I have white spots on the tops of my marigold leaves
and dark specs on the bottom of my sunflower leaves. Why is this?

Thank you very much.

Quite possibly mites.

Oh? The white one or the darker ones?
How do I rid my plants of these mites?

Thanks again!

The white one for sure. First, I would try a strong spray of water to wash them off. I don't use a lot of chemical sprays but I do sometimes use pyrethrin spray for heavy infestations.
