Leafminers are larvae that feed inside of a leaf, causing noticeable damage. Peeling open an infested leaf will reveal small, wormlike insects. They are commonly found in birch, holly, and boxwood. Extensive feeding can lead to early leaf drop, and in evergreen plants could lead to plant death.

Systemic soil treatments are generally the best option, and timing is important.
