Whitefly


The alaleodide is also known as the "white fly": it is an insect that feeds on different species of plants and makes many generations during the year. It lives on the underside of the leaves, usually in protected environments because it prefers high and constant temperature and humidity. The symptoms of its action on the plants consist of yellowing and defoliation, as well as a general deterioration of the conditions of the affected subject. The white flies also produce a large amount of honeydew. The treatment of these insects is rather difficult because they quickly develop resistance phenomena, but they can intervene with pyrethroids and buprofezines. Other measures that can be taken consist of the disinfection of the greenhouses at the end of each crop cycle and the use of traps with glues. It is also possible to resort to biological control with a hymenopter called a shapely encarsia.
Repeating the treatment once a month until the infection is eliminated.
