Buy Do It Yourself Leafminers Control, Professional Grade Leafminers Killer Spray
There are hundreds of insects that feed on the inside of leaf tissue in plants and are most commonly referred to as leafminers though some are called tipminers, shield bearers, and casebearers. These insects are the larval stage of different types of moths, beetles, sawflies and flies. While there are hundreds of species of leafminers, each specie usually has a specific type of host plant or family of plants. One of the most common leafminers in landscapes is the cypress tip miner or arborvitae leafminer. This insect causes damage to foliage of arborvitae, cedars, cypress, juniper, and redwood trees and so is often found damaging plants around the home. Scouting for arborvitae leafminer should start in the spring, when the silver-white cocoons can be found at the base of last-years new growth. Adults emerge between mid-spring and mid-summer, laying green scale-like eggs which hatch into green larvae that look like small worms and feed on the inside of foliage at the tips of branches. Feeding occurs from fall through the winter, before larvae form a cocoon and repeat the lifecycle. Because of the life cycle of the arborvitae leafminer, damaging populations are often not noticed until leaf tips begin to turn brown in late fall. When looking for how to treat arborvitae leafminer, we recommend that you apply broad-spectrum insecticides once adults have emerged from their cocoons, which can be as early as March in parts of California to as late as July in the northeast. Treating leafminers shortly after the adults emerge will prevent future populations from getting to a size that can be damaging. Birch skeletonizers are another common type of damaging insect considered a leafminer, which in addition to mining within leaves as larvae will also skeletonize leaf tissue by feeding on it as adults. These insects can cause pre-mature leafdrop of birches, and if populations warrant treatment professional grade insecticides with a broad-spectrum are the best mode of treatment.
