Birch leafminers are insects that can destroy the leaves of all ornamental birch varieties grown in Wisconsin. European, white, gray, and paper birches are most susceptible, but yellow and river birches are also affected. This fact sheet covers the pest's life cycle, the damage it can cause, and effective means of control (2 pages; Revised in 1997).
