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: 76% of groves infested (Norm 57%); 58% economic (Norm 35%).
Population is above normal, is in the high range and is expected to increase.
Infestation will be of similar magnitude on leaves and fruit. Highest districts are
West (2.33) South (2.11) Central (1.85) and North (1.41). East district is low (.84).
Citrus Red Mite: 27% of groves infested (Norm 23%); 7% economic (Norm 5%).
Population is slightly above normal but is in the low range. Little change is
expected. Highest district is Central (.62).
Texas Citrus Mite: 14% of groves infested (Norm 16%); 2% economic (Norm 3%).
Population is near average and very low in all districts. Slight increase is
Glover Scale: 56% of groves infested (Norm 50%); 5% economic (Norm 8%).
Purple Scale: 44% of groves infested (Norm 46%); 4% economic (Norm 2%).
Chaff Scale: 32% of groves infested (Norm 30%); 3% economic (Norm 4%).
Populations of these 3 species are near average, and low. Gradual increase is
expected. Highest district for Glover scale is South (.73), for purple scale it is
North (.57), and for chaff scale North (.50).
Black Scale: 49% of groves infested (Norm 37%); 24% economic (Norm 15%).
This scale will continue to be above average and near the current moderate level
of abundance. It is at high level only in Central district (1.38) and is not expected
to be of wide importance this year.
Yellow Scale: 34% of groves infested (Norm 46%); 2% economic (Norm 6%).
Population is below average. It will decrease and remain low in all districts.
Snow Scale: 29% of groves infested; 15% with moderate or heavy infestations. This
scale continued to increase. Population is higher than in any prior month. Further
increase is expected.
Whitefly: 84% of groves infested (Norm 64%); 29% economic (Norm 13%).
Population is in the high range and is highest for September in 19 years of record.
Additional increase is predicted for October. Highest districts are West (1.44) North
(1.32) Central (1.26) and South (1.04). The cloudy-winged species Dialeurodes
citrifolii predominates.
Mealybug population is now in the low range and will be lower. However, it is above
average for this time of year and is the highest for September in 19 years of record.
Highest district is South (.69).
Spray Notes: The outlook is for heavy infestation of rust mite to occur in about 30% of
groves in October. Rust mite can russet fruit just as readily in the fall as at other
times and in addition can cause leaf drop. Chlorobenzilate at 1.25 pints per 500 gal-
lons, or wettable sulfur at 25 to poud p 500 gallui, or sulfur dust may be used
if only rust mites are present. HUME LIBRARY
