I hate leaf miners. I'm battling with those little suckers and they are winning. Someone suggested that I pull off the affected leaves, but my poor little plants are running out of leaves. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you Nitram, I read that link this morning, lol. The thing is that they are attacking my tomato plants and I wanted to go organic, pesticide free. I don't know anything about neem oil, but will definitely will check into it.

Edit: Oh wow I'm going to head out and get some neem oil as soon as I am able! Thanks Nitram, I've never heard of the stuff, but it sounds like something that I can use.
