Target Leaf miners

There are numerous species of leaf miners as well as insects in which the larval stage lives in and nourishes itself from the plants leaf tissue. The leaf miner is capable of breeding throughout the year especially in heated greenhouses. It is an extremely virulent pest and when in outbreak proportions, it may severely disrupt photosynthesis in the plant leaves eventually leading to dry-out and defoliation.
