Comments Off on Another whitefly problem for south Florida.

The Pepper Whitefly is now a problem in south Florida.

A. trachoides is a polyphagous species with a preference for Solanaceae and Convolvulaceae. Solanaceous hosts include major cultivated species such as Capsicum spp., Solanum lycopersicum (tomato), S. melongena (aubergine),Nicotiana tabacum (tobacco), ornamentals (Cestrum, S. pseudocapsicum, S. seaforthianum) and wild plants/weeds (Datura stramonium, S. nigrum). The pest seems to be attacking mainly Capsicum spp., and to a lesser extent S. melongena and S. lycopersicum. The importance of host plants belonging to other families is not clear, but A. trachoides has been reported on cultivated plants such as, Annona spp., Citrus limon (lemon), Colocasiaesculenta (taro), Ipomoea batatas (sweet potato),Persea americana (avocado), Psidium guajava(guava), Theobroma cacao (cocoa), and Rosa.
