No insecticide other than a systemic can get at the mining grubs and once the leaves have it they remain damaged. However, it actually does little harm to the plant, it is only unsightly. All I ever do is to remove the affected leaves, a few at a time.
Binning the plant seems a little excessive.
Shasta daisy to me means Leucanthemum forms, is that what you have? Or do you mean something different? Not that it makes much difference to the prggnosis.

just pick off the affected leaves and put in the household bin. you may not get any next year.
