2014 Florida Citrus Pest Management Guide: Pesticides Registered for Use on Florida Citrus1

M.E. Rogers, M.M. Dewdney, and S.H. Futch2

The following are lists of products that are registered for use on citrus regardless of whether or not they are recommended for use. In cases where there are many similar products, such as copper fungicides, sulfurs, or petroleum oils, separate tables have been set up for each. All other products are listed in Table 4 and grouped according to use: (1) insecticides, acaricides, and nematicides; (2) fungicides; (3) herbicides; and (4) other products such as plant growth regulators and fumigants.

1Most oils are registered for use against citrus rust mite, greasy spot, spider mites, scale insects, whitefly, and other homopterans, and for removal of sooty mold.

2+ = effective; – = not effective; ID = incomplete data; Orchex 796 has been found to control pink citrus rust mite without harm to beneficial mites; others have not been tested.

3470-weight oils have not been evaluated for their effects on fruit coloring or ripening and are more likely to be phytotoxic than lighter oils.
