Target Whiteflies

Whiteflies are small sap-sucking insects that typically feed on the undersides of plant leaves and can inflict direct and indirect damage to a wide variety of crops and ornamentals.  Adults and nymphs feed on plant sap and since whiteflies congregate in large numbers, susceptible plants can be quickly overwhelmed yet the more serious damage is indirect.  Whiteflies vector several important plant viruses. Monitoring and identification are crucial to managing viral plant diseases in susceptible crops.
