How to control Citrus Leaf Miner
The presence of this pest can be identified by the silvery lines it leaves on leaves. These are the tunnels left by the larvae as it ‘mines’ its way through the insides of the leaf. Leafminers can cause a lot of damage to trees and the leaves will become severely distorted. When the larvae are fully grown, they curl the leaf edges and shelter inside the curled section. To control citrus leafminer, use Searles Pest Gun, spraying the affected foliage only. Keep a close monitor for more activity and spray again whenever new leaf damage is spotted.
For a fully organic alternative to control citrus leaf miner on citrus leaves, spray with a Ecofend Fruit & Garden Insect and Scale Spray.
