Ask-a-Grower Question #15

I have leafminers…What is the best solution?

Spider Mites I presume? If your plants are in veg I would recommend Floramite which is an chemical pesticide.  If your plants are in flower I would use 1 part frozen apple juice concentrate and 1 part water in a squirt bottle.  If you can stick each plant in the shower and give those girls a shower with the apple juice concoction it’s not too messy. There is an acid in the juice that melts the leafminers on contact.  The juice will not burn the plants and you can simply spray the plant with water to remove the apple juice. If your outdoors you may need to protect against ants looking for the sweet apple juice.
