We had an amazing program on August 7, thanks to the participation of over 70 Miami-Dade growers, pest control supervisors, Extension specialists and chemical industry representatives together at UF-Extension Auditorium in Homestead, Miami area.
UF entomologists: Drs. Mannion and Osborne gave talks on Identification of the current whiteflies species affecting Miami ornamental plants; chemical management; resistance due to wrong identification and alternative management control using natural enemies like biological agents.
Your Miami-Dade UF Extension agent: (me) taught growers and pest management supervisors about key points for a successful identification of the whitefly they want to control.
Also your UF-Extension Agent taught about how to sample for whiteflies and how to use the new and FREE University of Florida Extension Whitefly website! With tools for educators, professionals and homeowners! Click here
