Pathogens Infecting Insects and Mites of Citrus is a pictorial guide to the entomopathogens of phytophagous insects and mites found on all plant parts of citrus trees whether they are grown as a vast monoculture using contemporary high technological methods or as a few scattered trees grown on a hill side or in a homeowners' backyard. It includes illustrations of healthy citrus insects and mites and their feeding injury.

The purpose of this book is to present a comprehensive overview of the pathogens that cause disease of the various citrus arthropods, emphasizing:

  • visual recognition of a diseased host based on gross pathology
  • identification via diagnostic characters of the pathogen
  • visual recognition of healthy citrus pests and alternative ornamental hosts
  • and direct injury to the plant.
