Fig Ficus Whitefly

A New Pest in South Florida…

Fig Ficus White FlyThe Singhiella Simplex or more commonly known as the Whitefly has invaded ficus trees and hedges in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Whiteflies are small, winged insects that typically feed on the underside of leaves with their “needle-like” mouthparts. Whiteflies can seriously injure plants by sucking the chlorophyll from them causing wilting, yellowing, stunting, leaf drop, or even death. Ficus trees without their leaves are one of the most obvious symptoms of a whitefly infestation. At P.I.P. we have the resources to prevent, cure and protect your ficus hedges, ficus shrubs and ficus trees from an infestation of Whitefly.
Ficus Hedge Whitefly Infestation

In South Florida most properties use many species of ficus hedges as "privacy" hedges around the parameter of the property. The hedges are now vulnerable to the ficus whitefly; and if not treated immediately can lead to the lose of these once health plants. The ficus whitefly attacks the leaves on the ficus plant which leads to rapid lose of leaves on ficus trees, plants and hedges. The lose of leaves renders the tree unable to sustain nutrients to the root of the tree which leads to the complete lose of the tree. Therefore, it is extremely important to begin a treatment and prevention plan upon the initial onset of the ficus whitefly on your property.
