Various small homopterous
insects of the family Aleyrodidae, these insects have long wings and a
waxy body. Whiteflies are sucking insects that attack the underside of
new leaves. Whiteflies like to attack mesembs.
For small infestations, remove
flies by hand.
Make a loop of bright yellow
electrical/insulation tape into a loop, sticky side on the outside, place
it near to the infected plant. The white flies are attracted to the
yellow colour and will get stuck onto the sticky tape.
