The Ficus continues to be heavily infested with active white fly, normaly they'll have gone dormant or have succumbed to the colder weather by now. They don't seem to be responding as well to imidacloprid, bifertin, Aloft, or Orthene. Squirt guys here have been treating them with the same stuff (mostly Imidacloprid) for years instead of cycling the pesticide. Treatment has usually been limited to a foliar drench; very few guys will throw down a granular. We were just retained to treat hedges for whitefly... After a discussion with Helena chemical, I learned guys were not having as much success with the usual low cost products, which accounts for the continued activity. I'd like to hear about whitefly activity around the state (specially the Gumbo Limbo) and the chemical experience treating it. We just completed a foliar spray using Safari on 1,800 ft. of hedge. I'll check Monday for efficacy.
