Leaf Miner Damage
The larvae of various flies, moths, sawflies and beetles feed within the leaves, creating discolored blotches or surface trails. Most leaf miner damage is relatively harmless and can be left untreated.
Under glass, hang yellow sticky pads to trap the tiny white flying adults, which suck sap from plants; use a biological control (Encarsia wasp) on larvae or spray with organic chemical controls.
