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

Rust Mite on Leaves: 68% of groves infested (Norm 69%); 43% economic (Norm 53%).
Rust Mite on Fruit: 79% of groves infested (Norm 72%); 58% economic (Norm 54%).
Populations on both leaves and fruit are in the high range. Fruit infestation is
above normal for November, whereas leaf infestation is slightly below. Slight increase
is expected. Highest districts are West (2.11) South (1.93) and North (1.36).
Texas Citrus Mite: 19% of groves infested (Norm 27%); 4% economic (Norm 11%).
Population is below normal and in the low range. Slight increase is under way but
very few heavy infestations are expected to develop. Highest district is Central (.39).
Citrus Red Mite: 22% of groves infested (Norm 34%); 4% economic (Norm 9%).
This mite is also below normal and in the low range. It is at the lowest November
level in 17 years of record. Slight decrease is expected. Highest district is East (.43).
Glover Scale: 50% of groves infested (Norm 69%); 3% economic (Norm 14%).
Population is at the lowest November level since 1961. It will remain below normal
and in the low range. Decrease is expected. Highest districts are West (.79) and
East (.74).
Purple Scale: 37% of groves infested (Norm 65%); less than 1% economic (Norm 5%).
Population increased from the 17 year record low of September 1968 but is still the
lowest on record for November. Infestations will be low and unimportant despite further
expected increase. Highest district is East (.43).
Yellow Scale: 44% of groves infested (Norm 58%); less than 1% economic (Norm 10%).
Population continued below normal and in the low range. Decrease is expected.
Highest district is East (.61).
Black Scale: 34% of groves infested (Norm 32%); 10% economic (Norm 10%).
Population will remain at the current low level normal for November. Highest dis-
tricts are Central (.94) and East (.78).
Snow Scale: 14% of groves infested; 2% with moderate or heavy infestations. Slight
increase is expected in infested groves.
Whiteflies are expected to remain below normal abundance and in the moderate range.

NOTES: The early cold spell of November 13 and 14 slowed development of scales and mites.
Rust mite is the only one of these likely to be widely troublesome this winter.
Termites, ants, and fungi frequently arm young trees while they are banked for cold
protection. Recommendations to prevent ma include: Remove dead and broken branches,
and coat trunk wounds with water repell t int. Make the bank from soil free of
roots, chips and paper. Prior to maki the ay the trunk and surrounding soil
with a mixture of 1 qt of 72% chlorda (8E) per ons of water for insect control.
One pound of metallic copper in neut al fornyay be a fungicide. Apply 1 to
2 quarts of the mixture per tree us ng low p ~'s re to ting the tree. Do not
spray fruit. /
