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 on leaves: 78% of groves infested (Norm 50%); 54% economic (Norm 33%).
on fruit: 86% of groves infested (Norm 60%); 70% economic (Norm 44%).
Populations decreased on both leaves and fruit but both are still above normal and
at high level. Little change is expected. All districts are in the high range: West

Texas Citrus Mite: 19% of groves infested (Norm 23%); 4% economic (Norm 9%).
Population continued to decrease. It is below normal and very low. Little change
is expected until the fall increase begins in early October.
Glover Scale: 64% of groves infested (Norm 44%); 7% economic (Norm 8%).
Population is above normal and in the moderate range. Slight decrease is expected.
Highest district is South (.86).

Black Scale: 53% of groves infested (Norm 57%); 32% economic (Norm 36%).
Hatching of a new brood of crawlers will cause population to remain in the moderate
range which is near normal for September. Decrease is expected in October. Highest
districts are East (1.54) and Central (1,5).
Snow Scale: 29% of groves infested; 21% economic. Population is near the level of the
past 3 months and is higher than in any prior August. Increase is expected.
Whitefly: 73% of groves infested; 18% economic. Population is slightly above normal
and moderate. Adults are increasing and starting to deposit eggs on the early fall
flush. Highest districts are West (1.38) and East (1.23).
Spray Notes: Rust mite will be a continuing problem that will require frequent checking
of fruit with a hand lens. Spotty infestations can appear suddenly and quickly blemish
fruit. Most other pests will be unimportant in September. An exception is snow scale
which is likely to increase. Examine the bark on inside limbs for "snow" which is the
3-ridged white wax exudate of the male scales. Look among the males for tiny orange
colored crawlers. If crawlers are present, it is advisable to include a scalicide in
the fall spray.
THE NEXT SUMMARY WILL BE ISSUED EARLY IN OCTOBER.
