Spiraling Broward and Palm Beach Whitefly Treatment For Palm Trees
Whiteflies are small, winged insects that belong to the Order Hemiptera which also includes aphids scales, mealybugs, and bugs. These insects typically feed on the underside of leaves with their “needle-like” mouthparts. Whiteflies can seriously injure host plants by sucking juices from them causing wilting, yellowing, stunting, leaf drop, or even death.
What Are Whiteflies
According to Wikipedia, "Whiteflies are small hemipterans that typically feed on the undersides of plant leaves. They comprise the family Aleyrodidae, the only member of the superfamily Aleyrodoidea. More than 1550 species have been described. The adult whitefly resembles a very small moth with a yellow body and white wings with a faint grey band in the middle of the wings. Immature stages (eggs and nymphs) can be found primarily on the underside of the leaves. Prior to adult emergence, the nymphs are tan to light green discs with red eyes. The underside of infested leaves look like they are dotted with small, silver or white spots which are actually the empty “skin” of the pupae after the adult emerges.
Spiral Whitefly Signs in Broward and Palm Beach
In addition to feeding on the nutrient in the leaf tissue, the rugose whitefly will produce a very sticky secretion known as "honeydew". This sticky film is produced in such high quantities that it drips of the leaves and falls onto whatever lies beneath the canopy of the tree. This honeydew will start to appear on decks, driveways, cars, patio furniture, the pool and even the roof and walls of the home. The honeydew will then start to turn black as sooty mold forms on the surface. Ants are also highly attracted to honeydew as a primary food source.
- White spirals and buildup of white waxy substance on leaves
- Plants can get infested and make the majority of leaves turn white.
- They produce Honeydew which leads to Sooty Mold and this turns things black like the tree trunk and anything beneath the tree*
Whitefly In Your Broward and Palm Beach Pool
If the whitefly gets in the pool, they will impact the filter and chlorine levels. The pool will start to turn green as the chlorine will no longer be able to stabilize the organic material in the water. Minimize insect infestations with these suggestions from the United States Department of Agriculture Systematic Entomology Laboratory:
- Visually inspect your plants.
- Provide ideal growing conditions. Nothing keeps insects at bay like a healthy plant.
- Destroy old crop residues that harbor whitefly infestations unless large numbers of natural enemies of whitefly are detected. Destroy all crop residues infected with virus.
- Plant resistant varieties where available.
- Plant earlier in the spring and late in the fall to avoid high infestations late in the season and use short-season varieties.
- Avoid planting next to crops infested with whitefly and avoid carry-over from infested plant material.
- Delay planting fall vegetables until whitefly migration has diminished: Use physical barriers during heavy migration or plant tolerant crops during these periods.
- Adopt spraying methods that improve coverage, especially underneath leaves.
