NO 'y pests or conditions of general or current interest are reported.
Forecasts are for 1 month in advance unless otherwise indicated.

Citrus Rust Mite: 767. of groves infested (Norm 51%); 53% economic (Norm 29%).
Population at the end of June was the highest for that period in 20 years of
record. Further increase to very high level is expected through July. Highest dis-
tricts are South (1.96) West (1.83) North (1.77) and Central (1.56).
Citrus Red Mite: 81% of groves infested (Norm 68%); 51% economic (Norm 43%).
Population is above normal and in the high range. Decrease is expected. Highest
districts are North (1.96) West (1.87) South (1.70) and Central (1.43).
Texas Citrus Mite: 86% of groves infested (Norm 77%); 70% economic (Norm 56%).
This mite also is above normal and in the very high range. Decrease is expected
at mid-July. All districts are high: North (2.39) Central (2.20) South (2.13) East
(1.67) and West (1.67).
Glover Scale: 93% of groves infested (Norm 86%); 25% economic (Norm 32%).
Population is near the normal high level for June. Gradual decrease is expected
in July. All districts are high: South (1.65) Central (1.23) West (1.07) East (1.05)
and North (1.04).
Purple Scale: 78% of groves infested (Norm 80%); 4% economic (Norm 13%).
Population is below normal and moderate. Slight increase is expected. Highest
districts are West (1.00) and South (.96).
Chaff Scale: 54% of groves infested (Norm 72%); 1% economic (Norm 17%).
Yellow Scale: 43% of groves infested (Norm 70%); none economic (Norm 12%).
Population will continue below normal and at low to moderate level in all districts
despite a slight increase.
Snow Scale: 25% of groves infested; 18% economic. Population has held rather constant
since March but is expected to increase in July.
Mealybug: 58% of groves infested (Norm 70%); 14% economic (Norm 29%).
Increase started about 3 weeks later than average this year. It will continue to
increase through July but is not expected to attain the high levels of the past two years.
Whitefly: 84% of groves infested (Norm 69%); 20% economic (Norm 15%).
Population of the immature forms is in the high range and slightly above normal.
These forms will be fewer in July, coincident with the current increase in adults.

Spray Notes: FC 435-66 spray oil is effective in controlling greasy spot when applied
at 1.0% concentration by volume within 1 month after expansion of the summer flushes.
Oil alone does not control snow scale. The 1971 Spray Schedule lists several scalicides
that are effective when used alone or with oil. Thorough coverage of all wood is neces-
sary to control snow scale.
