My cukes & yellow squash look like leafminer is taking over. Any suggestions on a remedy before I lose my first SFG. Thanks for any feedback. affraid

I have leafminers on most of my plants. Haven't had them take out a plant yet. I know that doesn't help you get rid of them, but maybe it'll give you some hope that they'll survive.

After reading up on it what i have found is the damage is mostly cosmetic. Many different insects lay their eggs inside leaf tissue. I used to gently pinch the tunnles along their length to crush them. Now I just let nature take it's course.

^^^ Shannon is right. It looks a bit awful but plants don't seem to be in peril so I take the view now if they can ignore it so can I.

Neem Oil will get rid of leaf miners and deter most chewing insects you can buy it in a concetrate and dilute it as needed best to use every 2 weeks or after a hard rain
