International co-operation tackles leaf miners:

Scientists will collaborate to control invasive leaf miners (Liriomyza spp) in east Africa. The African Insect Science for Food and Health, the ICIPE, the Kenya Agriculture Research Institute, the KARI, and the International Potato Centre, the CIP, have joined forces for the project. It will build on existing studies on leaf miners while tackling research gaps on the affordable, environmentally-friendly and sustainable management of the pest, the ICIPE says. The partners are to focus on strengthening leaf miner biocontrol as well as other techniques harmless to the pest's natural enemies. The research is expected to benefit farmers and producers of biopesticides. The German Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development will fund the project.
