Rugose Spiraling Whitefly in Naples, Florida, The Sequel--14 months after the invasion
the rugose spiraling whitefly moved into Collier County around November 2011. It tended to favor coconut and Christmas palms, white bird of paradise and bananas. Over time it has moved on to other hosts such as Bucida ("black olive") and banyan tree, Ficus benghalensis (or near). The infestation has been impressive in the numbers of whiteflies and large volume of honeydew and the subsequent sooty mold. People are not taking sustainable actions when they remove palms and butcher trees to stop the excessive annoyance of the honeydew and mold. The whitefly can be controlled so the mess and annoyance are minimal.
