Smith, D. and Ironside, D.A. (1974) The seasonal history of Gascardia destructor (Newstead) in Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 31 (3). pp. 195-199.



Two generations of white wax scale Gascardia destructor (Newstead) were found to occur annually on citrus in Queensland. There are two important times in the seasonal history when spray materials should be applied. These are at the first appearance of summer peak stages during late November-early December and at the last emergence of summer crawlers during late January-early February.
