After negotiating a bout of tobacco bud worms, those poor plants are now
being beset by leaf miners! They are all new plants, in their pots about
a month. Is it too soon to use a systemic insecticide? Some of the
plants which are in the ground, out by the orange tree, are showing
signs of leaf miners, but I am fearful of using a systemic anywhere near
fruit that we will eat. Any suggestions? I would be extremely grateful!
