All arthropods associated with citron (Citrus medica) are also known on other citrus species and there is marked similarity between the key pests of citron and lemon. The pests discussed are mainly related to the situation in Israel and in Santa Maria del Cedro in Italy. The 28 reviewed species are: eight mites (Aceria sheldoniAculops pelekassiBrevipalpus californicusEutetranychus orientalisPanonychus citriPhyllocoptruta oleivoraPolyphagotarsonemus latusTetranychus urticae), three thrips (Chaetanaphothrips orchidiiFrankliniella occidentalisScirtothrips dorsalis), one leafhopper (Asymmetrasca decedens), one whitefly (Aleurocanthus spiniferus), two planthoppers (Diaphorina citri, Trioza erytreae), five aphids (Aphis craccivoraAphis gossypiiAphis spiraecolaMyzus persicaeToxoptera aurantii), scale insects (Aonidiella aurantiiCoccus hesperidumIcerya purchaseParlatoria pergandiiPlanococcus citri), one fruit fly (Ceratitis capitate), five fruit moths (Apomyelois ceratoniaeCryptoblabes gnidiellaPhyllocnistis citrellaPrays citriThaumatotibia leucotreta) and one woodborer (Anoplophora chinensis). These are considered major pests. Since any arthropod infestation or injury to the fruit renders it non-kosher, citron orchards require a strict pest management regime. The citron fruits are more susceptible than most other commercial citrus varieties to mites and sucking insects, to the citrus flower moth and to the citrus bud mite, but to a much lesser extent to fruit flies.
