    What about the yellowing? Is that from tbem too? I've never heard of them so I will go do some research! Thanks a million! The tree is producing like crazy tho!

    I'm not certain but I don't think the leafminers are responsible for the yellowing leaves. There does not appear to be a large number of such leaves as seen in the photos. The new growth is pale but perhaps the damage prevented its normal development. What about new growth that is unaffected, is it also yellow? I should mention that citrus should be fed on a regular basis with a fertilizer containing micronutrients.
