Damage by whitlfy
The whitefly’s nymphs feed on plant juice and excreted sticky honeydew. The honeydew improves the growth of moulds, which interferes in the photosynthesis and transpiration of the plant. Furthermore, whiteflies are true vectors of many viruses such as TYLCV.
Amblyseius swirskii especially prefer the eggs and first nymph stage of greenhouse whitefly or tobacco whitefly. It can consume about 10 eggs and young larvae in a day.
