Small white flies suck the undersides of the leaves, leaving behind marks on the front of the leaves. They will extract and consume nutrients during the process. Females will lay eggs on the underside of the leaves and usually in a "fairy ring" pattern (circle) as they stay in position and turn when laying eggs. Whiteflies are small but are visible to the naked eye.

More Images:


• Sticky traps can be used to trap and track the whiteflies.
• Lowering temperature can also be a way to reduce population.
• Vacuuming or removing the leaves can be done to reduce the whitefly population.
• Insect barriers can be used to prevent them from spreading.

Natural Predators:

• Encarsia Formosa
• Eretmocerus eremicus
• Amblydromalus limonicus
• Amblyseius swirskii
• Delphastus Catalinae

Insecticidal soaps can be used, however, it is known that Whiteflies can develop resistance over time.
