NOTE: Only pests or conditions of general or current interest are reported.
Forecasts are for 1 month in advance unless otherwise indicated.

Rust Mite: 64% of groves infested (Norm 65%); 39% economic (Norm 37%).
Population increased and is again at high level. Further increase is expected to
take population well into the high range and above normal for October. Infestations will
be higher on fruit than on leaves. Highest districts are West (1.69) South (1.68) and
North (1.18).

Texas Citrus Mite: 15% of groves infested (Norm 19%); 3% economic (Norm 3%).
Population increased from the very low level of September but is still low and below
normal. Gradual increase is expected. Highest district is North (.35).

Citrus Red Mite: 17% of groves infested (Norm 24%); 3% economic (Norm 5%).
Gradual increase from the record low September level is underway and will continue.
Population is expected to remain low and below normal. Highest district is West (.31).

Black Scale: 30% of groves infested (Norm 35%); 6% economic (Norm 12%).
Population will remain low and below normal. Highest district is East (.62).

Glover Scale: 35% of groves infested (Norm 61%); 1% economic (Norm 9%).
Purple Scale: 18% of groves infested (Norm 58%); 1% economic (Norm 3%).
Chaff Scale: 16% of groves infested (Norm 43%); less than 1% economic (Norm 3%).
Populations of the 3 scales named above will continue below normal and in the low
range despite gradual increase.

Yellow Scale: 32% of groves infested (Norm 57%); less than 1% economic (Norm 7%).
Population is in the low range and below the average level of the past 4 years.
Little change is expected.
Snow Scale: 14% of groves infested; 1% economic.
Activity is at a low level and little change is expected.

Whiteflies are present in larval form in 60% of groves. 10% have economic infestations.
Population will remain near the normal moderate level for October.

Spray Notes: Heavy infestations of rust mites may be expected in many groves in all parts
of the citrus belt during the next two months. Rust mite control should be started be-
fore 15% of leaves or fruit are infested. Chlorobenzilate 4E at 1.25 pints per 500 gals
can be used for rust mite alone; sulfur may be preferred for dense trees that are hard to
penetrate; Guthion LC2 at 5 pints per 500 gals is a good choice if snow scale, other
scale or whitefly also require control. The latter 2 materials may promote spider mite
buildup. Kelthane, ethion, trithion and Dplnav are recommended for rust mite and
spider mite control. HU E LIBRARY
