Orange Tree - Leaf Miners

Asked January 23, 2017, 5:04 PM EST

After the freezing temperatures we have had in the last weeks, a good many of my orange trees have lost leaves and will be sprouting new leaves within the next month or so. In the past young leaves are prone to getting "leaf miners" which attack the young leaves shriveling them up and eventually killing them thus preventing them from growing into mature leaves. My question is "what product can I purchase over-the-counter that can prevent this from occurring?"
Also "when do I begin applying it and how often?".....Lee...The Woodlands, TX.....Thanks
