Living habits of Liriomyza
The adult larvae are about 2 mm long; the larvae have a maximum body length of 3 mm and a grub shape. The adult uses an ovipositor to make a small mouth on the foliage of the plant, and absorbs the juice inside. The female lays the egg under the epidermis of the wound. The eggs hatch in 2-5 days, and the larval stage is 4-7 days. The terminal larvae bite the epidermis and pupate the leaves outside the leaves or under the surface. The larva turn into adult 7-14 days, 2-4 weeks in summer, and 6-8 weeks in winter.
