2010 Florida Citrus Pest Management Guide: Soft-Bodied Insects Attacking Foliage and Fruit
This section of the Citrus Pest Management Guide provides information on the group of insects belonging to the order Homoptera which affect foliage, twigs, and fruit of citrus in Florida. The insects covered here include scale insects, mealybugs, whiteflies, and aphids. These insect species affect tree health and fruit quality, and can impact mature fruiting trees as well as newly planted groves and resets. Their biologies, generation times, plant parts affected, and injury vary, but similar approaches to their monitoring and management cause them to be grouped here.
