Balcony container vegetable garden in Baltimore city
Join the crowd....my most hated pest.
I'll trade you my aphids for your leaf miners. ;0) Try covering them with shade cloth or row covers. Good luck!
I have heaps of leaf miners too. Many of my seedlings were affected so I had to re-sow many seeds this fall.
So far the damage is not bad and I have to just pick the leaves. So far it is on contained...hope it doesn't spread!
When you're out inspecting your plants, look on the undersides of the leaves for eggs. If you see them, squishing them is effective. You just have to be diligent about squishing!
Holly, I will squish away!
