Spiraling Whitefly on Plumeria

Aleurodicus rugioperculatus

How to Fix the Problem
  • Remove affected plants & debris on ground or cut off affected parts

  • Wash on a regular basis with water to kill adults, eggs and nymphs

  • When spraying, you must spray often as the lifecycle is short until the problem has receded.

  • Populations decrease November through March in cooler temperatures – systemic treatments most effective Spring before populations increase
