Whitefly Pest Management

Spiral Whitefly: A Threat to Palm Beach County Trees

Spiral whitefly is a small, sap-sucking insect that is a major pest of trees in Palm Beach County, Florida. It can infest a wide variety of trees, including gumbo limbo, black olive, copperleaf, arrowhead, coloplum, and mango. The best way to manage spiral whitefly is with early detection and intervention. If you see any signs of infestation, such as yellowing leaves or a sticky substance on the leaves, call a pest control professional immediately.

Spiral whitefly lays its eggs in a spiral pattern on the underside of leaves. The eggs are covered with a waxy substance that makes them difficult to see. The larvae hatch from the eggs and feed on the sap of the leaves. This can weaken the trees and make them more susceptible to other pests and diseases.

If spiral whitefly is not controlled, it can cause significant damage to trees. In severe cases, it can even kill trees. If you are concerned about spiral whitefly infestation, please contact a pest control professional. They can help you identify the problem and develop a treatment plan.

Here are some additional tips for preventing spiral whitefly infestation:

  • Water your trees deeply and regularly. This will help to make the trees more resistant to pests and diseases.
  • Prune your trees regularly to remove dead or diseased branches. This will help to improve air circulation and reduce the chances of pest infestation.
  • Inspect your trees regularly for signs of pests or diseases. If you see anything suspicious, contact a pest control professional immediately.

By following these tips, you can help to protect your trees from spiral whitefly infestation.

Fig Whitefly Management

Fig Whitefly: A Pest of Ficus Hedges in Palm Beach County

Fig whitefly is a small, sap-sucking insect that can infest ficus hedges and trees in Palm Beach County, Florida. The infestation can cause the leaves to drop, which can make the hedges less effective as a privacy barrier.

Prevent-A-Pest offers a systemic drench treatment that can help prevent or eradicate fig whitefly infestations. The treatment is applied to the roots of the plants, which helps to kill the whiteflies before they can lay eggs. This treatment is effective and safe for the environment.

In addition to the systemic drench treatment, there are a few other things that can be done to prevent fig whitefly infestations. These include:

  • Watering the hedges deeply and regularly.
  • Pruning the hedges regularly to remove dead or diseased branches.
  • Inspecting the hedges regularly for signs of infestation.

If you notice signs of a fig whitefly infestation, it is important to contact a pest control professional as soon as possible. They can help you identify the problem and develop a treatment plan.

Here are the plants that are commonly affected by fig whitefly:

  • Ficus tree / hedge
  • Gold mound

Fig Whitefly Treatment. To maintain a privacy hedge around the property, the infected plants need to be deep root drenched with a liquid insecticide at least twice a year. This will help to kill the whiteflies and prevent them from laying eggs.

It is important to note that fig whitefly can be resistant to some insecticides. If you have a severe infestation, you may need to contact a pest control professional to get the best results.
