Citrus Health Management Areas (CHMAs)
3/26/15 It appears that the progression of the bloom is still variable from grove to grove. We still have a plan in place to begin an area wide spray next week pending petal fall. Looks like probably middle to latter part of next week. I still see plenty of bee hives along 17 so make sure to tell the bee keepers they need to move the bee hives. If you don't have hives on your property make sure to mention this to your neighbors. Hopefully everyone has a plan in place to get this very important spray application on. Just a note our company inspectors have started seeing an increase in both adults and nymphs in the grove here in Lake Placid.
