What are Whiteflies?

Whiteflies are tiny flying insects that are most commonly found on indoor plants and in greenhouses. You can typically find them on the underside of leaves and can become a nuisance because they are resistant to most fertilizers and can seriously harm plants by extracting juices from them. Their feeding habits cause leaves to yellow, shrivel, and mold to appear.

What is Our Approach to Whitefly Control?

We use several different methods aimed to prevent or eradicate whitefly populations from your home:

  • Yellow sticky traps

  • Horticultural oils

  • Safer® Soap

  • And more!

Where do Whiteflies Come From?

Whiteflies often come in pre-purchased plants as those are often kept in greenhouse conditions that are perfectly suited for their procreation. They also tend to be most prevalent in the spring as they come from the outdoors, leaving behind their winter hiding places to plague fruit plants a world over.

How Can I Prevent Whiteflies?

Attracting the right type of insect and regular pruning can go a long way in preventing whiteflies from settling in your garden. Introducing flowering plants to your yard will attract beneficial insects like spiders or ladybugs which are natural predators of the whitefly. Regularly checking the underside of leaves will also help catch the problem before it gets out of hand.
