Does this look like leaf miner damage? There are small tracks on most of the older leaves similar to the picture.

Hey there so with the miners like people have mentioned you're doing alright with the spinosad and removing the bad leaves, as miners live inside them. Since you're only at week 4, you could use neem in addition to the spinosad, but definitely retreat the area a few times with your spinosad at least. If you start noticing bite Mark's out of the leaves then you may have other bugs and the spinosad may not work against them, this is why a secondary treatment (neem, predator bugs, or BT is useful)
Best of luck, great job at catching them so early on.

Yes it is ! And the solution is neem oil, spray it on the leaves, remove those who are already damaged.. Should be ok

Hi, yes it is leaf minor. You should remove the leaves effected right away. Some may advise against but neem oil spray is good until flowering starts. It builds a good defense in veg!

Yep, it is leaf miners. If you have good eyesight you can check the underside of the leaves and pick the miners with your nails, or take out the affected leaves if you don't have / or want to use any product. Neem oil or / and insecticidal soap work really well.

Hi @HomerAndAbe, yes it definitely looks like miners digging into the leaves. I would use some neem oil mixed with water and spray onto and below the leaves when the light turns off, everyday until they're gone - or until you have flowers. I use 10-12 drops of neem oil for 500ml of water. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:
