Leafminer is a significant issue here at the farm is left unaddressed. Leafminer affects the leaves of succulent green leaves. Moths lay eggs on the leaves of our greens, swiss chard, beet greens, etc. When the larvae hatch, they eat through their way through the leaves, making squiggly white tunnels. If the leaves are not removed, the larvae will eat a hole through the leaf, and then drop into the soil, perpetuating the life cycle. Our control method is to remove miner affected leaves early in the life cycle, and put them into a plastic trash bug. We’ll leave this out in the sun, which will liquefy within a few weeks.
