Oil spray now for citrus leaf miner

Those silver squiggly tracks in generally new leaves? If you haven't got them yet then spray with pest oil 5ml per litre -certified organic I think. The protective coat stops the little moth laying it's eggs.

And helps with scale too. If you already have them - yuk. Few chemicals help - perhaps Confidor - so either rub them off manually or cut back and hope for new growth. Given that we have a few weeks of growing season yet I went for the second, but it's a little risky.
