There is a bug leaving white trails in the leaves of my sugar snap peas. When I turn the leaf over it looks like they are in the leaf. Any idea what they might be and how to get rid of them? My peas are planted with carrots, Chillies, lettuce and cucumber.

What you are describing sounds like Leafminer. Leafminers are the larvae of various beetles, flies, and moths. The adult lays their eggs on the leaf and the larvae burrow into the leaf and tunnel through it, feeding and leaving a transparent trail of where they’ve been. I would remove the effected leaves then spray with Yates Success Naturalyte Insect Control or by spraying early in the spring with a natural insecticide such as Neem oil. The key is to get the adults before they lay eggs again.
