Applied Biological Control Research: Silverleaf Whitefly, Bemisia argentifolii

Tomato and bean breeders are attempting to develop varieties with resistance to geminiviruses, but these varieties are still some time from commercialization. Honeydew can also disfigure flowers and, in cotton, can cause problems in lint processing. No doubt they will also feed on MEAM1 species. Sublethal doses of imidacloprid a chloronicotinyl insecticide commonly used against whiteflies in combination with B. The mycetomes house several species of endosymbiotic bacteria that may play an important role in whitefly nutrition.

The efficacy of B. The feeding rate of predatory mites on life stages of Bemisia tabaci Mediterranean species.

Bemisia argentifolii

Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata, 61 3: Evaluation of color mulches and oil sprays for yield and for the control of silverleaf whitefly, Bemisia argentifolii Bellows and Perring on tomatoes. Within a few hours, their two pairs of wings become iridescent white due to the deposition of a powdery wax. Silverleaf argentifolli Scientific classification Argenttifolii Particular attention is needed for consignments from countries where certain B. Formerly cultivated plants must be removed and the hothouses must be closed tightly to kill insect pests under high temperatures by solar heating after the finish of the cultivation in summer physical control.


Females oviposit under suitable hosts, and parasitoid larvae, after hatching, penetrate the ventral surface of the host and develop as endoparasitoids inside the host.

Based on work by Joseph LaForest and anna bowden. However, Bellows et al. Greenhouses are screened with very fine mesh plastic screen. Aqueous extracts of Azadirachta indica against Bemisia tabaci B biotype Hemiptera: The second and third nymphal instars each last about two to three days. Description Top of page Eggs Eggs are pear shaped with a pedicel spike at the base, approximately 0.

Bemisia tabaci (MEAM1) (silverleaf whitefly)

Agricultural practices Physical movement of infested plants, whether it be through plant care, harvesting or spraying, can result in adult MEAM1 dispersal from an infested plant. And other morphologically identical species. In Japanse with English summary. Eggs are initially whitish in color and change to a brown color near hatching, within 5 to 7 bemizia.

Retrieved from ” https: Silvering of butterbur leaves by the sweetpotato whitefly and its control countermeasure. Distribution and identity of biotypes of Bemisia tabaci Gennadius Hemiptera: Thus, the best control is to maximize the distance and time interval between host crops.

Aphelinidae has provided successful biological control of low and high density populations argentifoliii T.

Black pupal case of Encarsia transvena within body of Bemisia nymph. Adult whiteflies emerge through a T-shaped slit in the integument of the last nymphal instar.

Acta Entomologica Sinica, 51 4: Honeydew deposition on leaves produces a shiny, sticky sheen, and provides an ideal substrate for sooty mold growth e.

Hosts for this fungus include whiteflies, mealybugs, beetles, caterpillars, and flies. Nymphs feed by stabbing into the plant with their mouth-parts and sucking up plant juices.

Natural enemies of whiteflies will, in most cases, have co-evolved with their prey and may, in some regions, be more efficient at controlling their native prey than an introduced one.

Lacewing larva Chrysoperla sp. Description of a species of Bemisia Homoptera: Some major control methods include, application of oils, use of natural enemies such as Aphelinidae parasitoidsemployment of trap cropsrelease of insect growth regulators, and implementation of traps.

All stages of this whitefly are likely to be transported within the international trade of ornamental plants and cut flowers. Disorder of various vegetables caused by releasing a new type of the sweetpotato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci Gennadius. Biological control of B.

After harvest, crop residue tomato plants, in particular should be removed so that there is no plant material for large numbers of whiteflies to carry over the crop-free period, usually the height of summer.
