Scientific Name: Aceria longana Boczek & Knihinicki
Longan Erineum Mite is a carrier of Phytoplasma. The damaged leaf cluster has the peduncle in canopy shape with a short internode as a broom. The ruined flower will dry and fall. The remaining peduncle is brown and dried so it does not produce fruit or gives low yields.
Prevention and Elimination
- Prune and burn the branch and treetop.
- Spray Mitraz 300 cc. or Ozophrene 200 g. to prevent the epiphytotic (usage rate is per 200 ltr. of water).
