Organic Control Tips Wilting leaves in your garden may be a sign of whitefly damage. Learn how to implement controls such as yellow sticky traps, reflective mulch, and insecticidal soap. By Barbara Pleasant April 26, Whiteflies look like tiny white triangles, less than one-tenth inch long, when resting on the undersides of plants.

Whiteflies are tiny, soft bodied, insects and often mistaken for miniature moths. Whiteflies get their name from the white, waxy substance produced by special glands on their abdomen. The adults use this wax to coat their bodies and wings giving them a white appearance - hence the name "whiteflies.
Parasitoid wasp emergence hole from a whitefly nymph. This whitefly is also frequently attacked by a suite of parasitoids, but remains difficult to control. In greenhouse systems, whiteflies are often managed using augmentative releases of natural enemies. Predators or parasitoids are purchased from commercial insectaries and periodically released to reduce pests.
The family often occurs in older literature as "Aleurodidae",  but that is a junior synonym and accordingly incorrect in terms of the international standards for zoological nomenclature. Many are so small that their size complicates their control in greenhouses because they can only be excluded by screening with very fine mesh; in fact they can enter mesh so fine that many of their natural enemies cannot come in after them, so that unchecked whitefly populations in greenhouses rapidly become overwhelming. This sometimes is associated with sexual dimorphism in which one sex is markedly larger than the other. Such dimorphism is common in the Sternorrhyncha, in which the males of most scale insects for example are tiny compared to the female.
