Like their name implies, whiteflies are tiny little flies that are white. The spiraling in their name comes from the pattern they leave on the leaves of your favorite ornamentals. Like all whiteflies, this variety is a sap sucker. They use their piercing mouth parts to punch into the leaves of your plants and drink the sap. As the whiteflies consume the sap in your yard, they defecate honeydew. Honey dew is super sweet. The sweet honey dew causes the white fluffy mold to begin to grow. While the whiteflies and the mold are not likely to kill your plants, most homeowners are horrified by the ugly snowy appearance. Since spiraling whiteflies are an invasive species, they do not have natural predators. Since nothing has evolved to eat them here in Wellington Florida, the whiteflies spread without constraint.
