Rust Mite: 81% of groves infested (Norm 56%); 57% economic (Norm 38%).

the summer peak is reached about mid-August. Gradual decrease will begin in late August
but heavy infestations will be common through September. Highest districts are South (2.27)
Central (1.78) North (1.76) and West (1.73). Mites are more numerous on fruit than on leaves.

late July above normal level. It will decrease in August but is not expected to drop from
the high range until September. All districts are high: East (2.47) South (2.41) West

level. Decrease is expected. Highest district is East (1.52).
yMealybug has decreased .into the moderate range and will drop lower.

Spray Notes: Supplemental rust mite control will be necessary in many groves in August.
Recommended materials are sulfur spray or dust or chlorobenzilate or Nabac. Sulfur should
not be applied within 3 weeks of an oil spray. Sulfur spray is less likely to be washed
off by rain than sulfur dust.
