Hello everyone. New to gardening. Have a question about my new lemon tree. I planted it in the ground in south FL about a month ago. I have the leaves looking like burnt but white. Also have these worms. Can you please advise what the issue is and how to remedy? Thank you.

Thank you for your response, Does this also happen on the lemons? How do I get rid of them? I googled. Cant find a straight answer. Many recomment Neem oil. How do I use it? Spray on the tree?

All citrus is prone to leaf miner damage. It is common on new tender growth. Your state has good information on this link https://trec.ifas.ufl.edu/mann...
