Alternative Solutions For Protecting Leafy Vegetables From Leaf Miners And Egg Laying Flies
Question From: Gasquet, California, United States
Q: I am just a little backyard veg. gardener - fighting the leafminers and egg laying fly on leafy vegetables - past years cannot even grow swiss chard, beets etc. because of these problems. I see the spray Azamax on the website, but very expensive - any other product that will help that won't be so costly??
Covering the surface of the soil with black plastic will keep them from emerging out of the soil. Covering the plants with a floating row cover will keep the flying adults from laying eggs. Good Luck, Nancy and Happy Yardening
