Well, I did get a couple of emails from some hybridizers saying that they used Avid and that it did work for leafminer on daylilies. They both said they had been using it for years! Why am I just hearing about it?
I was advised to avoid the contact and go for the systemics. I was advised to use Imidacloprid early on in the spring when the aphids move in. That controls the aphids pretty well and gets a start on the leafminer. When the scapes start to appear, is when the leafminer mines start showing normally, and that is also the time to start spraying for mites and leafminer with Avid or similar product. Then after the bloom cycle look for any sign of a mine and if even one appears spray again with Avid (or similar product) or Asaphate.
I was told if the cost of Avid was too much that the Imidacloprid use with the Asaphate would control the leafminer, but if the garden had mites to use the Avid, because Asaphate would not control mites.
Being I found a generic Avid for $65.00 a quart with shipping I went ahead and ordered a qt. bottle of that.

Be careful with systemic insecticides with flowering plants. Imidacloprid is toxic to bees. Usually, it is recommended to apply it post-flowering. Or chop off all your flowers which could be contaminated.
