Answer: Hi Paul,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your citrus tree. Looks like you have an infestation of citrus leaf miner. It is a tiny nocturnal moth lays its eggs on leaves, a tiny caterpillar hatches, tunnels through the leaf distorting it as it goes to the edge, rolls it over and pupates there.
It is active all through the warmer months and you can control it by trimming off the damaged leaves and spraying Yates Nature’s Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray. Click here for more info: http://www.yates.com.au/products/organic-gardening/pest-disease-control/Natures-Way-citrus-and-ornamental-spray/

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
