Neem Oil and Leaf Miners

Post  Hasselback on 4/19/2012, 7:24 am

The title says it all gang. How has your experience been with controlling leaf miners through the use of neem oil?

Sorry. I have never had leaf miners.

Leafminer Control: Pick off and destroy infested leaves in small
growing areas. Maintain plant health with organic fertilizers and proper
watering to allow plants to outgrow and tolerate pest damage. The
parasitic wasp Diglyphus isaea is a commercially available
beneficial insect that will kill leafminer larva in the mine. Use yellow
sticky traps to catch egg laying adults. Cover soil under infested
plants with plastic mulches to prevent larvae from reaching the ground
and pupating. Neem oil and Indoor/Outdoor IGR break the pests'
life-cycle by preventing larva from reaching maturity. Neem oil may also
have repellent qualities and interfere with egg laying activities.
Botanical insecticides can be used to knock down adult insects but have
little effect on the protected larval stage feeding inside the leaf.

Note:
Pest outbreaks often occur after general pesticide applications. This
is because many of the pests natural enemies are affected by the
pesticide.
