For years we have been plagued by leaf miners of all sorts and I’m sure this year won’t be any different. Using dormant oil to snuff out the leaf miners or spraying with an organic insecticide like Spinosid haven’t been the most effective solutions because of the timing. Bayer recently came out with a new product called “Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus, and Vegetable Insect Control.” Check out this great article from Texas A&M on using Imidacloprid in vegetable gardens and fruit trees.
