Caption

Vegetable leaf miner fly (Liriomyza sativae). This fly lays eggs inside the leaves of vegetable plants, such as bean, pepper, tomato and watermelon plants. When the larvae hatch, they cause great damage to plants by burrowing inside the leaves and feeding on the inner tissues that contain the least amount of cellulose. They are difficult to control as living within the leaves protects them from insecticide sprays. One solution is to plant their most preferred plants nearby, a method known as companion planting, so that the leaf miners are drawn to those plants rather than the crops.
