leaf miner damage on tomatoes

I'm about ready to start growing tomatoes and would like to avoid the problem I had last summer with leaf miners.  What do you suggest?

Re: leaf miner damage on tomatoes

If it is only a little damage to the plant remove the leaf or squish the bug inside the leaf. It is difficult to treat the plant once it is infested the leaf will protect the insect. There are some pheromone traps to attract the mature egg-laying leaf miners. Beneficial insect, like ladybugs or parasitic wasps with attack leaf miners.  If you need to spray contact you county extension service for recommendations and timing. For your area.
