Infected leaf removal

Hello,

Some sort of insect has been munching on my leaves. Its only a few leaves at the moment, and I cannot see any insects on the leaves stem, but I am wondering if I am better to cut the leaves off in case of eggs etc.

 

I'm thinking the cost of the leaf to the plant is worth the risk of more insects (eggs on leaf, although I cant see any). Appreciate the community's thoughts?

 

Cheers

Take several photos, on tops of leaves, under the leaves, on the stems.  Put them on your computer and view them on there - Zoom in loads for a good inspection.

 

If you can post some pictures up...

Will do, good idea thanks. Ddidn't think of that. I was using a 30x magnifier glass which was awkward to use. Computer is much easier, Cheers.

Most of the leaves are ok (for now) but there are a few that look like this:

When look to get the leaf photo I noticed a small deposit on the main stem just under the leave bunch:

I think it looks like a little egg sack but im not sure. I rolled it off the stem with tissue to get a closer look:

I think I rolled it up a bit using the tissue to remove it. It was more cyclinder shaped on the leaf.

 

Cheers for any info.

A damn sight easier to spot. ;) The little white spots look a bit like trip damage but I've never seen go all the way through a leaf. Thrip laeve look like tiny maggots.
