What is this on my orange tree leaf?

The silvery, squiggly marks on your citrus are signs of citrus leaf miner - the larvae of a tiny white moth. The moth lays its eggs on leaves and after hatching, the larvae tunnel into the leaf, leaving silvery trails.

The damage you see there is irreversible, however, you can help protect your tree and reduce the chance of the moth laying its eggs by spraying leaves with Yates PestOil.
