tion on fruit is also very high. These high levels will occur into December and about 30%
of groves will have heavy infestations. All districts are high: South (2.44) North (2.05)
Central (1.91) West (1.62) and East (1.36).
Texas Citrus Mite: 19% of groves infested (Norm 30%); 10% economic (Norm 11%).
Population is below normal and at low level but is increasing. Increase is expected
until mid-December and a few scattered groves will develop heavy infestations. Highest
districts are North (.57) and West (.33).

and North (.50).

Glover Scale: 74% of groves infested; 5% economic. Population is below average and at
moderate level. Little change is expected. Highest districts are East (1.04) South (.96)
and West (.93).
Purple Scale: 47% of groves infested; 1% economic. Population is at the lowest November
level on record. Slight increase is expected. All districts are below .57.

Spray Notes: Termites, ants, and fungi frequently harm young trees while they are banked
for cold protection. Recommendations to prevent damage include:
1) Remove dead and broken branches and coat trunk wounds with water repellent tree
2) Prior to making -. bank, spray the trunk and surrounding soil with a mixture of
1 qt of 72% chlordane (8E) per 100 gallons of water for insect control. One
pound of metallic copper in neutral form may be added as a fungicide. Apply 1
to 2 quarts of the mixture per tree using low pressure to avoid blasting the
tree. Do not spray fruit.
3) Make the bank from soil free of roots, chips and paper.
