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: 69% of groves infested (Norm 49%); 41% economic (Norm 30%).
Population will remain in the high range and above normal. It will show little change
until July when a rapid increase on new fruit is expected. Highest districts are South (1.74)
Central (1.53) and North (1.31).
Texas Citrus Mite: 64% of groves infested (Norm 64%); 43% economic (Norm 43%).
Population is increasing rapidly. It will attain the normal high summer level in late
June then decrease in July. About 20% of groves will harbor heavy infestations. Highest
districts are Central (1.61) and South (1.54).
Citrus Red Mite: 33% of groves infested (Norm 63%); 14% economic (Norm 38%).
This mite is also increasing but will remain below normal summer abundance. About 10% of
groves will develop heavy infestations. Highest districts are West (.93) and South (.82).
Black Scale: 74% of groves infested (Norm 62%); 60% economic (Norm 41%).
Population is the highest for June in 21 years of record. It is building up to high level
earlier than usual and is expected to peak about mid-July. Highest districts are East (2.76)
Central (2.17) South (1.65) and North (1.10).
Glover Scale: 82% of groves infested (Norm 87%); 5% economic (Norm 26%).
Population is the lowest for June since 1964. Little change is expected from the current
moderate level. Highest district is West (1.00).
Purple Scale: 69% of groves infested (Norm 77%); 4% economic (Norm 9%).
Population will remain below normal and in the low to moderate range in all districts.
Chaff Scale: 38% of groves infested (Norm 62%); less than 1% economic (Norm 10%).
Yellow Scale: 33% of groves infested (Norm 63%); less than 1% economic (Norm 8%).
These two scales will remain below normal and in the low range in all districts.
Snow Scale: 31% of groves infested; 22% economic. Population will remain near current level.
Whitefly: 76% of groves infested; 27% economic. Population is above normal and in the high
range. Increase is expected. Highest districts are East (1.83) and West (1.27).
Mealybug: 59% of groves infested; 14% economic. Population is increasing rapidly and is
expected to enter the high range by the end of June. A summer peak near normal level is ex-
pected at mid-July.
Green Scale: 25% of groves infested (Norm 6%); 7% economic (Norm 1%).
This uncommon species has suddenly become more abundant than at any month in 21 years of
record. Spotty infestations occur in the East, Central and South districts.

Spray Notes: The predicted high populations of black scale, whitefly and mealybug will result
in heavy coatings of sooty mold unless these honeydew producing species are controlled.
Sprays containing 0.5 percent or more oil loosen the sooty mold. Do not apply oil unless the
trees have adequate moisture.
