Yesterday we had a confirmation of red palm mite in Palm Beach Gardens as you can see from the message below.  We would appreciate you alerting the Cooperative Extension Agents and any other UF IFAS personnel.  Dr. Jorge Pena has been advised and is working on a recommended treatment for any nurseries that may be affected in the future.  In cooperation with USDA, we will begin a delimiting survey to determine the extent of the outbreak.  This is a pest that we have long expected due to its prevalence in the Caribbean.  It cannot be eradicated but will be regulated to prevent long distance spread. The following link provides more information about this pest.  Suspect samples can be sent here to our division for identification or confirmation.  Residents can contact our helpline for additional information at 1-800-282-5153.

Today we received a coconut leaf sample collected 11/29/2007 from Palm Beach Gardens (Palm Beach County) with several colonies of red palm mites (Raoiella indica). The sample consisted of a single leaflet collected by A. Levy (USDA) from a coconut palm at the Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center on Burns Rd. The leaflet had 100+ adult mites and hundreds of eggs. At appeared that the mites have had at least one and maybe two generations on the submitted leaflet and they have been depositing numerous new eggs. Slides of males and females have been prepared and I have confirmed them to be RPM. This is the first report of live red palm mites in Florida and the continental US. The entomology report will be emailed shortly. I will also be sending specimens to Dr. Ron Ochoa at the USDA for their records.  The attached picture shows adult females and recently deposited eggs on the distal portion of the coconut leaflet. If you have any questions or need additional information please contact me.  CAL
