Why does my lime tree have silvery lines on it

The silverly lines are everywhere are they good or bad?

Fruit and Citrus • Pests

Are your citrus leaves growing all weirdly, looking a little shrivelled and curled up? The culprit may be the citrus leafminer (Phyllocnistis citrella). A tell-tale sign is the silvery, squiggly lines all over the leaves. The tiny moth (5mm!) lays eggs on the leaves and when they hatch, the larvae tunnel their way through the leaves, leaving silvery tracks. Prevent new eggs from being laid by spraying leaves with Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray.
