About Whitefly Treatment For Plants
There are different species of whitefly, many in similar appearance. Banded winged whitefly, giant whitefly, ficus whitefly, greenhouse whitefly, silver leaf whitefly, and spiraling whitefly, to name a few, are small hemipterans related to aphids, scales, and mealybugs. It can create a real problem feeding undersides of plant leaves.
Usually, these triangular, moth-like shaped insects with powdery white wings occur in warm and humid climates. Once you welcome a few of them, being fast breeders, they multiply in no time. When they feed, they leave behind a sticky material called honeydew, which attracts other pests, molds, and fungal infections like Anthracnose.
They are often found near the tops of plants or on stem ends. However, they attack soft leaves of houseplants, flowers, vegetables, and citrus fruits. These pests have developed resistance to most ordinary insecticides; thus, tailored solutions for whitefly insect control are crucial.
