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

Citrus Rust Mite: 78% of groves infested (Norm 59%); 64% economic (Norm 45%).
Population decreased on leaves but increased on fruit. Both indexes are in the
high range and above normal. Decrease is expected. All districts are high: West
(2.44) North (2.08) South (1.82) Central (1.58) and East (1.50).
Citrus Red Mite: 52% of groves infested (Norm 44%); 24% economic (Norm 22%).
Population dropped out of the high range and will continue to decrease. It is
near normal for August. Highest districts are West (1.11) and South (.92).
Texas Citrus Mite: 41% of groves infested (Norm 46%); 24% economic (Norm 21%).
This mite is decreasing and will soon be at the normal low level for August.
Highest district is South (.83).
Glover Scale: 76% of groves infested (Norm 61%); 11% economic (Norm 15%).
Population dropped to the moderate level normal for August and will decrease
further. Highest district is North (1.06).
Purple Scale: 63% of groves infested (Norm 56%); 7% economic (Norm 3%).
This scale decreased from moderate to low level but is still slightly above
normal for August. Decrease is expected. Highest district is North (1.06).
Yellow Scale: 42% of groves infested (Norm 55%); 10% economic (Norm 6%).
Population dropped sharply and will continue in the low range. Highest district is
North (1.06).
Black Scale: 69% of groves infested (Norm 68%); 35% economic (Norm 49%).
Population decreased and will soon be at moderate to low level. It will continue
below normal. Highest districts are East (1.58) West (1.67) and Central (1.18).
Snow scale is less abundant than in the past 3 months. About 9% of groves will have
moderate to heavy infestations. Little change is expected.
Chaff scale will continue to be below normal and unimportant in all districts.
Whitefly: 71% of groves infested; 27% economic.
This pest has decreased but is still at high level and above normal. Little
change is expected.
Mealybug population dropped to moderate level and will continue to decrease. It is
higher than normal for August.

Spray Notes: In groves with a history of brown rot, it is advisable to apply a copper
spray to the lower 6 feet of tree in August. Use 3.5 pounds of neutral copper (52-56%
copper) or equivalent per 500 gals. Chop cover crop to improve ventilation.
