Caption: Leaf miner damage on a Dahlia sp. leaf. A leaf miner is an insect larva that feeds on the internal tissues of leaves, leaving pale tracks where it has eaten as it tunnels. Many fly, moth and beetle larvae mine. Such larvae can cause significant damage to the plant, with severe infestations even capable of killing it. In agriculture, insecticides can be used to kill leaf miners that damage crops.
