The Whitefly Facts, Identification & Control
Whiteflies are small winged insects which look more like moths than flies. They have a powdery wax which both protects them and is key to identification. They are active in all parts of the world and will thrive year round in the south but go dormant during the winter in northern states. Though white flies can be a tough and persistent pest, the right combination of materials combined with the right timing of treatment can solve any infestation.
Control of Whiteflies
The current recommendation is to drench the soil around the base of the tree or hedge with a product that contains a systemic application of insecticide. A total foliar spray of the tree or hedge can be performed for immediate, but temporary, eradication of the whitefly.
