Tropical Fruit Discussion / Lychee Erinose Mite ,Homestead
« on: August 12, 2020, 02:41:02 PM »

Dear Tropical Fruit Growers,


The Lychee Erinose Mite (LEM) has been found in multiple locations in Miami-Dade County, including a commercial grove in Homestead. This is an extremely damaging lychee pest and should be taken very seriously.

The attached documents contain our current recommendations to manage this pest. There is also a document on Frequently Asked Questions, as well as a label for a pesticide that has recently been labeled for control of LEM.


It is very important that you frequently scout for this pest and alert me and FDACS if you believe you have the pest. Our contact information is in the attached documents.


Please contact me with any questions.


Thank you,





Jeff Wasielewski
