Rust Mite: 79% of groves infested (Norm 55%); 57% economic (Norm 35%).
This pest increased greatly and further increase is expected. Population on leaves
is in the high range and is the highest in 18 years of record for mid-May. Infestation
of fruit is also much above normal and will soon be at high level. Highest districts are
North (2.41) West (2.00) South (1.76) and Central (1.38).
Texas Citrus Mite: 36% of groves infested (Norm 53%); 16% economic (Norm 29%).

Citrus Red Mite: 41% of groves infested (Norm 52%); 13% economic (Norm 26%).
This spider mite also is below normal abundance and at low level statewide. Slight
increase expected and heavy infestations are likely to develop in about 5% of groves.
Highest districts are West (,91) and North (.72).
Six-spotted Mite: 16% of groves infested; 7% economic.
Population increased and is near the average May level of the past 7 years. Scat-
tered heavy infestations may be expected into June in groves not treated with miticide.

expected. Highest

of groves infested (Norm 82%); 12% economic (Norm 27%).
slightly below average and in the moderate range. Slight increase is
districts are South (1.12) East (.95) and North (.93).

Purple Scale: 82% of groves infested (Norm 81%); 6% economic (Norm 11%).
Population is below normal and at moderate level. Although increase is expected,
very few infestations will be severe.
Yellow Scale: 76% of groves infested (Norm 65%); 7% economic (Norm 9%).
This scale is slightly more abundant than normal but only a few infestations are heavy.

The summer increase of this scale has started and will continue into July. Current
population is below normal and in the low range. Highest districts are East (.63) and
Central (.40).
Snow Scale: 20% of groves infested, 7% with moderate or heavy infestation. This scale
will continue to spread.
Mealybug: 167 of groves infested; 2% economic. Population is still low but expected
rapid increase will cause heavy infestation in scattered groves.
Whiteflies: 71% of groves infested; 10% economic. Population of the larval form is near
normal. It is expected to increase and enter the high range.
