The Q&A Archives: rust mites on orange trees

Question: I have six orange trees in Florida and can't seem to stop rust mites. The trees produce well but the looks of the fruit is terrible. How can I control the rust mites?

Answer: To control rust mites, spray with wettable sulfur or micronized sulfur, in amounts and with the frequency as indicated on the package label. You can spray from November through April, as new populations emerge. Best wishes with your citrus!
