Pest Of The Week: Leaf Miners 

Leaf miners

In the insect and pest control communities, we use the term leaf miner to describe a variety of insects that eat in live within the membranes of plants. This behavior is very destructive, causing severe damage to the plants these leaf miners infest.

There are many different types of leaf miners, but the majority are insect larvae; typically different species of flies and moths. Additionally, there are also other wasps and beetles that exhibit this destructive leaf mining behavior.

Leaf miners are considered a serious pest control problem because of their destructive capabilities; especially to gardeners and farmers. A serious leaf miner infestation can easily wipe out a garden or field of agricultural crops.

Leaf miners are difficult to treat with common pesticides, as they are protected in the leaves of the plants they eat and live in. To prevent a leaf miner invasion, many gardeners or farmers will plant “trap crops” near the valuable fields.
