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: 85% of groves infested (Norm 58%); 68% economic (Norm 34%).
Population on both leaves and fruit is the highest for mid-July in 20 years of
record. Leaf population will decrease late in July whereas the fruit population will
increase through July and decrease in August. Statewide population will continue to be
above normal and very high despite the predicted decreases. All districts are high:
North (2.32) West (2.25) South (2.17) Central (2.00) and East (1.60).
Citrus Red Mite: 74% of groves infested (Norm 70%); 44% economic (Norm 41%).
The population peak occurred in late June; it was above normal and in the high range.
Decrease started early in July and will continue through August when population is ex-
pected to be low. Highest districts are: South (1.78) West (1.77) and North (1.38).
Texas Citrus Mite: 90% of groves infested (Norm 76%); 71% economic (Norm 53%).
Population attained the summer peak early in July. It was in the high range and
much above normal. Decrease to low level is expected in August. All districts are
high: North (2.24) South (2.11) Central (2.10) West (1.77) and East (1.76).
Glover Scale: 82% of groves infested (Norm 80%); 20% economic (Norm 29%).
Population decreased and is now below normal. It is expected to drop out of the
high range in July and continue to decrease to low level in August. Highest districts
are South (1.50) and West (1.08).
Purple Scale: 77% of groves infested (Norm 75%); 6% economic (Norm 12%).
Population is near normal and in the moderate range with slight decrease expected.
Highest district is South (1.11).
Black Scale: 69% of groves infested (Norm 85%); 42% economic (Norm 65%).
Population of this scale has entered the high range but is below normal. Little
change is expected. Highest districts are East (1.91) South (1.39) and Central (1.34).
Chaff Scale: 50% of groves infested (Norm 66%); 1% economic (Norm 13%).
Yellow Scale: 43% of groves infested (Norm 66%); none economic (Norm 11%).
Both of these scales are below normal abundance and are expected to occur only as
light infestations. Populations will remain low to moderate in all districts.
Snow Scale: 28% of groves infested; 20% economic. Population increased in early July
and is higher than in July of any prior year. Slight decrease is expected.
Whitefly: 79% of groves infested; 22% economic. Population is in the high range and
slightly above normal. Temporary increase is expected. Highest districts are East
(1.52) and West (1.12).
Mealybug: 64% of groves infested; 14% economic. Population has attained the annual
peak of abundance at moderate level and much below normal. Decrease is expected.
