NOTE: Only pests or conditions of general or current interest are reported.
Forecasts are for 1 month in advance unless otherwise indicated.
Rust Mite on Leaves: 71% of groves infested (Norm 39%); 53% economic (Norm 23%).
Rust Mite on Fru-it:: 46% of groves infested (Norm 34%); 24% economic (Norm 17%).
Population is above normal and in the high range with further increase expected,
especially on fruit. Highest districts are Central (2.20) South (2.19) West (1.58) and
East (1.54). Heavy infestations will occur in all districts.

Texas Citrus Mite: 64% of groves infested (Norm 58%); 44% economic (Norm 37%).
Population is above normal and in the high range. Further buildup is expected until
July. Highest districts are South (1.80) Central (1.59) and West (1.36).


Citrus Red Mite: 54% of groves infested (Norm 57%); 26% economic (Norm 33%).
Population is below normal and is expected to remain in the moderate range.
tricts will have a few heavy infestations. Highest districts are East-(i.20) and
North (1.00).


Glover Scale: 84% of groves infested (Norm 84%); 16% economic (Norm 31%).
Population has entered the high range but is below normal due to lag in seasonal
buildup. Further increase is expected to keep population in the high range into July but
heavy infestations will be spotty. Highest districts are East (1.57) and South (1.15).


Purple Scale: 72% of groves infested (Norm 83%); 2% economic (Norm 14%).

Sray Notes: Scale buildup is later and populations are lighter this June. Unless white-
fly, mr.alybug or black scale are numerous, it may be advisable to delay the summer spray
for better scale and greasy spot control. Rust mite should be controlled whenever it
threatens to become abundant.
