Rust Mite on Leaves: 80% of groves infested (Norm 67%); 64% economic (Norm 47%).
on Fruit: 76% of groves infested (Norm 73%); 60% economic (Norm 52%).
Population decreased slightly but is still near the record high October level.
Although further decrease is expected, rust mite will continue to be above normal and
in the high range in most districts. All districts are high: South (2.42) West (2.00)
Central (1.88) North (1.74) and East (1.31).

are expected. Highest district

Citrus Red Mite: 23% of groves infested (Norm 31%); 6% economic (Norm 8%).
Population is still below normal and in the low range. Increase is expected which
will lead to important infestations, especially in young groves in areas of scanty
rainfall. Highest districts are West (.57) and North (.43).

Glover Scale: 69% of groves infested; 5% economic. Population is still slightly below
normal but is increasing and will move up to the moderate range. Highest districts are
South (.93) West (.93) and East (.91).

Purple Scale: 42% of groves infested; less than 1% economic. Population is at the
lowest October level in 10 years and will remain uniformly low in all districts.

Yellow Scale: 60% of groves infested; 4% economic. Population is less than the average
for recent years and at low level. A slight increase is expected which will lead to a
few important infestations in scattered groves. Highest districts are West (.80) and
East (.74).

Chaff Scale: 38% of groves infested; 2% economic. Population is below normal and at
low level. Slight increase is expected. Highest district is South (.59).
Snow Scale is present in 11% of groves. Most infestations are lighter at this time of year.
Whitefly increased to the moderate level normal for October. Slight additional increase
is expected.

Spray Notes: We are now in the season when crops may be harvested on short notice. It
is important that theUSDA approved waiting periods between pesticide application and
harvest be observed. Details are given in the 1967 Citrus Spray and Dust Schedule.
