Boxwood Leafminer Emerge

Boxwood leafminers, which have been devastating many boxwoods in their larval form, are emerging as adults now…. They will be seen flying around boxwoods, very busy. Looking like gnats, and flying into the house if you leave windows open.

Don’t worry, they won’t bite…but they are annoying. More importantly, they do serious damage to Boxwood’s and annually increase in populations.

NOW, as they emerge, they are easy to kill organically, but must be treated before they lay eggs again in this years new growth.
