chili leaves

the above link goes to my webpage with the chili pics.

There is some kind of yellow twiggy lines growing on the leaves on my chili plants. I dont know what it is. Did I put too much fertilizer or over watered? Or is it some kind of bug that is causing that problem?

I hope someone can help me identify this problem because 90% of my chili plants have this problem.

By the way, if you are interested, I created a timeline for my chili, and the link is chili timeline

hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks

Thanks Angelblossom, thanks for all the helps.

I can only think of one way to really get rid of these leaf miners. Since I'm going to give these potted chili plants away, I was thinking that I should remove all of the leaves before giving it away. This way, hopefully, none of the leaf miners eggs/larvas would make the trip to the destination.

Angelblossom, leaf miners only lays their eggs in the leaves, right? and not in the soil?
