Leafminers on tomatoes
« on: May 28, 2022, 09:16:03 pm »
I hate to post another question but since earthbox gardening is different than inground or container gardening I keep coming back here. I apologize in advance but I would appreciate any advice you may have regarding how you all have dealt with leaf miners on your tomato plants. Do you remove any and all affected leaves or do you use a spray? Or any other tips? Thank you

Iíve tried to do a search on this forum but canít seem to find anything.

For leaf miners you can use Bt or spinosad. I prefer spinosad because it has longer effectiveness.
Why Google, when you have me?
