Subject: [Market-farming] trouble with insect feeding in tunnels

 

Greetings,
    I am trying to see if others have run into problems with insect feeding
on greens in tunnels during the late season/winter months? Specifically, we
are are seeing small worm (like very tiny loopers) and finding pin-hole
feeding damage on spinach. However, not actually seeing these insects
feeding so it could be something else. Has anyone seen feeding like this and
actually seen the insects responsible?

Thanks.

Robert
