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

Rust Mite: 73% of groves infested (Norm 56%); 52% economic (Norm 34%).
Population is decreasing but is still above normal and in the high range. Further
decrease is expected to drop statewide population out of the high range for the first
time since September 1967. Highest districts are South (1.84) Central (1.81) and
West (1.67).
Texas Citrus Mite: 33% of groves infested (Norm 27%); 12% economic (Norm 10%).
Population will decrease to the low level normal for March and hold near that level
until mid-April. Highest district is East (.73).
Citrus Red Mite: 31% of groves infested (Norm 37%); 11% economic (Norm 14%).
This mice will remain below normal abundance and in the low range. Highest
district is East. (.77).
Six-spotted Mite: 5% of groves infested; 1% economic. Little change is expected.
Glover Scale: 80% of groves infested (Norm 80%); 8% economic (Norm 18%).
Population will remain subnormal and in the moderate range. Highest districts are
East (1.14) and West (1.00).
Purple Scale: 68% of groves infested (Norm 80%); 2% economic (Norm 11%). Population is
the lowest on record for March. Little change is expected. All districts are low.
Chaff Scale: 41% of groves infested (Norm 66%); 1% economic (Norm 11%). This scale
continues to be much below normal, and in the low range. Little change is expected.
All districts are low.
Yellow Scale: 66% of groves infested (Norm 61%); 1% economic (Norm 15%).
cPpulation will remain low and below normal. Highest district is South (.82).
Black Scale: 39% of groves infested (Norm 27%); 19% economic (Norm 12%).
Population is in the low range but above normal for March. No important change is
expected. Highest districts are Central (1.31) and East (.86).
Snow Scale is in 16% of groves and will increase.
Aphids are present in less than 2% of groves. They are expected to peak in late April
this year, 2 weeks later than normal, and be less abundant. than usual. Scattered in-
festations will be important in Temple, tangelo and Murcott groves and in young plantings
of other varieties.

Sjiray Notes~ Indications point to a peak bloom period occurring in late April at least
2 weeks later than average. This will postpone the spring spray period. New is a good
time to inspect groves for scales, especially snow scale on trunk and limbs, for Glover
scale on inside leaves and sprouts, and for live black scale on branches, terminals and
Survey records show that 25 to 60% fewer applications of copper, nutritional elements,
and miticides were made in 1967, compared to other years. A two-year omission of these
materials could lead to seriously weakened trees.
