The american serpentine leafminer, Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess), is a common pest of vegetable crops in South Florida. Few pesticides are effective in controlling this pest in commercial fields.  To avoid development of resistance against currently available insecticides, studies have been conducted to determine additional effective insecticides of diverse modes of action.  Entrust, Delegate and Exirel were found effective to controlling leafminers on vegetable crops.  Premix insecticides used in various studies were also fond in controlling leafminers.
