Population is much above average and very high. Infestations are of similar
both leaves and fruit. Further increase is expected until mid-November. Highest
West (2.27), South (2.25), North (2.12) and Central (2.05). East district is low

tricts are West (.50), North (.43) and South (.42).
Texas Citrus Mite: 23% of groves infested (Norm 18%); 3% economic (Norm 4%).
This spider mite is also starting to increase from the normal low level. Heavy infestations
are likely to build up rapidly in scattered groves during the.next 2 months. Highest district
is West (.36).


Glover Scale: 567. of groves infested (Norm 56%); 4% economic (Norm 7%).
This scale increased but is still below normal abundance and in the low range.
increase is expected. Highest districts are West (1.00) and South (.79).


Purple Scale: 46% of groves infested (Norm 53%);

cool weather. Highest districts are Central (1.52), East (1.00) and South (1.00).
Snow Scale: 27% of groves infested; 20% moderately or heavily infested. Population will
remain spotty and near the level of the past few months. Activity will become less with the
onset of cooler weather.
Whitefly: 91% of groves infested; 30% economic.
Populations of eggs, larvae and adults increased and are now in the high range and much
above normal. Decrease is expected in November. All districts are high: East (1.64), West
(1.50), Central (1.19), South (1.12) and North (1.03).
