NOTE: Only pests or conditions of general or current interest are reported.
Forecasts are for 1 month in advance unless otherwise indicated.

Rust Mite: 74% of groves infested (Norm 58%); 63% economic (Norm 34%).
Population advanced to a new record high level for April and will continue in the
high range. Highest districts are West (2.33) South (2.10) Central (1.85) and North (1.54).
Texas Citrus Mite: 74% of groves infested (Norm 43%); 51% economic (Norm 19%).
Population of this mite also increased to a record high level for April and has en-
tered the high range. Further increase is expected as mites build up on new leaves.
Highest districts are West (1.89) North (1.69) South (1.46) and Central (1.41).
Citrus Red Mite: 63% of groves infested (Norm 47%); 31% economic (Norm 17%).
This mite continues to be more abundant than average. Statewide population will
remain at moderate level but with some heavy infestations in all districts. Highest
districts are North (1.46) West (1.44) and South (.92).

Glover Scale: 87% of groves infested; 27% economic. Statewide population of this scale
is above average. It will increase further into the high range. Highest districts are
East (1.41) Central (1.31) and South (1.28).
Purple Scale: 81% of groves infested; 15% economic. This scale will continue to be in
normal abundance but with very few heavy infestations. Highest district is Central (1.24).
Yellow Scale: 74% of groves infested; 2% economic. Population will increase through
June but infestations will be much lighter than in recent years. Highest district is
West (.92).
Chaff Scale: 60% of groves infested; 6% economic. Gradual increase is expected; however,
population will remain below normal and in the low to moderate range. Highest district
is East (.82).
Black Scale: 21% of groves infested; 6% economic. Population is below the average of
recent years. It will remain low despite the gradual increase expected late in May.
Highest district is East (.77).

Snow Scale is increasing in infested groves.

Whitefly adults reached the spring population peak in early April. Eggs are now present
in above normal numbers.

Six-spotted mite and mealybug are scarce and of no concern at this time.

Spray Notes: Where rust mite must be controlled in May, use 25 lbs of wettable sulfur,
or 1.25 pints of chlorobenzilate 4E or 0.5 pint of Nabac 50E per 500 gallons. If spider
mites as well as rust mite must be controlled, use 2.5 pints of either Delnav 4 liquid,
ethion 4 liquid or Trithion 4 liquid or 4.0 pints of Kelthane MF per 500 gallons. For
black scale and rust mite use 5.0 pints of Guthion 2 liquid.
