West (1.47).
Citrus Red Mite: 59% of groves infested (Norm 64%); 22% economic (Norm 41%).

Slight decrease is expected. Highest districts are North (1.04) and East (1.00).
Glover Scale: 88% of groves infested (Norm 86%); 20% economic (Norm 32%).

These 3 scale species are much be-
low the levels of recent years and
are not likely to'develop heavy
infestations in any district.


Black Scale: 73% of groves infested (Norm 68%); 45% economic (Norm 49%).
Population has increased greatly and is at the normal high level for June. Further
increase is expected to keep population above normal and in the high range through July.
All districts are high: East (1.86) Central (1.74) South (1.25) North (1.22) and
West (1.19).
Snow Scale: 16% of groves infested; 4% with moderate or heavy infestations. Increase
is expected.
Mealybug; 64% of groves infested; 1% economic. Population will increase and will ap-
proach the high range. It is expected to remain below the summer peak levels of the
past 4 years. Few infestations will be important.
Whitefly: 65% of groves infested; 27% economic. Population of the larval form has en-
tered the high range and is expected to remain near the current high level which is normal
for June.
Melanose infection of leaves in May was the lowest recorded in 17 years of record.
Spray Notes: To give a long-lasting effect, the summer spray should .be thorough, even if
the pests are not abundant at the time of application. Users of concentrate sprays should
check lheir mixture against the recommended amounts of pesticide per acre and per tree
based on the diluce rate. Then make sure the spray is uniformly dispersed throughout the
tree. Some growers are applying too little pesticide to do the job.
