Whiteflies are small, winged insects that typically feed on the underside of leaves with their “needle-like” mouthparts. Whiteflies can seriously injure host plants by sucking juices from them causing wilting, yellowing, stunting, leaf drop, and in some plants even eventual death. Get Tony’s Whitefly Extermination and Prevention.

This whitefly has been reported on almost every type of palm tree in the state of Florida. While this whitefly may not cause death or severe dieback like the ficus whitefly it effects palm trees and plants in other ways. Its most noticeable symptom is its appearance of white spirals and a build up of a white, waxy substance on the underside of the leaves. If populations build up and infested plants can become covered with the white waxy substance. The palm tree can then become weakened and also be disfigured by the black sooty mold that grows on the insect’s excrement (referred to as honeydew).

The sticky honeydew can accumulate on cars, boats, pool decks and patio furniture from infested trees overhead and become extremely messy. Once the insect is under control, the sooty mold and honeydew will eventually disappear. You can protect your palm trees with our safe and effective Whitefly Extermination.
