Rust Mite: 70% of groves infested (Norm 62%); 43% economic (Norm-41%).

increase. It will continue above the normal level for this time of year. Highest dis-
tricts are West (1.67) and East (1.48).
Citrus Red Mite: 48% of groves infested (Norm 37%); 16% economic (Norm 14%).

level is expected. A few groves in all districts may develop heavy infestations. Highest
district is West (1.00).
Texas Citrus Mite: 22% of groves infested (Norm 31%); 4% economic (Norm 11%).
This mite decreased further to very low level and is much below normal. Little change

low on a statewide basis. It is higher than in February of previous years. Increase is

Whiteflies: 59% of groves infested (Norm 55%); 32% economic (Norm 22%).
Population is much above normal and is in the moderate range. Little change is
Spray Notes: As a rule, spraying should be avoided while trees have blossoms open. If
rust mite or aphids require treatment, this should be done before or after the full bloom
