Small Whitefly Creates Big Mess in SWFL!

The Whitefly Epedemic in Southwest Florida

Lenny’s Pest Control of Southwest Florida is always on the lookout for way to keep your family and home safe and protected from unwanted pests, bugs, parasites, rodents, etc… When we heard about the Whitefly we immediately took on the task of getting educated on the subject and finding out what we needed to do to keep our trees protected. We took the necessary steps to become experts on how to exterminate, protect and prevent the whitefly from affecting our environment and we started offering this service to our clients. We’ve had very successful results and today we want to share some of that research with you. Please feel free to check out this FGCU fact sheet for more information.

whitefly infestation swflThe WHITEFLY: Recently, a new pest was reported attacking ficus trees and hedges in Florida. This pest was identified as the fig whitefly, Singhiella simplex, and is a new US continental record. Whiteflies are small, winged insects that belong to the Order Hemiptera which also includes aphids scales, mealybugs, and bugs. These insects typically feed on the underside of leaves with their “needle-like” mouthparts. Whiteflies can seriously injure host plants by sucking juices from them causing wilting, yellowing, stunting, leaf drop, or even death.

Whiteflies have become a major issue in Southwest Florida with at least four species of particular concern: Ficus, Rugose Spiraling, Bondar’s Nesting and Silverleaf. Residents have noticed plant leaves yellowing, dropping, covered with white waxy material called flocculent, or covered with whitefly excrement called honeydew and its accompanying sooty mold. Plants, walkways, cars, outdoor furniture and even pools may become covered with the sticky material or flocculent. Whiteflies are among the many pests that are part of living in a subtropical climate. They can be managed with proper plant cultural practices; use of other beneficial insects, mites and fungi; and judicious application of the appropriate pesticides.

white-fly Lee CountyRecommendations: We recommend that you monitor your ficus plants for early signs of an infestation because it will be easier to manage the pest before it builds to high populations and causes major damage. If the foliage is disturbed the small, white gnat-like adult whiteflies can be seen flying from the foliage.  The adult whitefly resembles a very small moth with a yellow body and white wings with a faint grey band in the middle of the wings.   Immature stages (eggs and nymphs) can be found primarily on the underside of the leaves. Prior to adult emergence, the nymphs are tan to light green discs with red eyes.  The underside of infested leaves look like they are dotted with small, silver or white spots which are actually the empty “skin” of the pupae after the adult emerges.  Also, if infested trees or hedges are trimmed, either leave the clippings on the property or if removing, bag the clippings to reduce the chance of spreading the insects.  If clippings are being transported in a truck, be sure to either bag them or cover these clippings with a tarp.

Although your ficus tree or hedge may appear to be dying after losing most of it leaves, it may still be alive.  If the twigs are still supple, the plant will produce new leaves in a few weeks.  As soon as new growth is evident, a systemic insecticide applied to the soil may provide protection to the new growth. If you do see signs of the Whitefly in your yard please give us a call at 239-945-6543 to get your trees protected immediately.

The Whitefly Damage:  The leaves of ficus trees infested with whiteflies begin to turn yellow before the leaves are dropped from the plant. Ficus trees without their leaves are one of the most obvious symptoms of a whitefly infestation. This whitefly has been most commonly found infesting weeping fig (Ficus benjamina) but has also been seen on F. altissima, F. bengalensis (also called “banyan tree”), F. microcarpa, and F. maclellandii. Weeping figs are commonly used as hedges but also grow as trees. Other hosts include the strangler fig (F. aurea), Cuban laurel (F. microcarpa), fiddle-leaf fig (F. lyrata) and banana-leaf fig (F. macllandii). This whitefly may eventually be found on other species of ficus. Azalea has also been listed as a host plant.

Spring is here – is your lawn invaded?

green healthy grass

Spring has arrived and it’s time to start your outdoor parting planning and relaxation. The question is – IS YOUR LAWN PEST FREE?

Pests are much more than just an inconvenience or annoyance in our daily living. Many present a significant risk of health as well as quality of life. Here at Lenny’s Pest Control we’ve just come to the realization that life is much better with pest control to keep away unwanted critters. The bottom line is you don’t want pests in your home or around your home either. We understand how important it is to keep the constant onslaught of ants, spiders, rodents, bed bugs and other common pests from encroaching into your home or business and we want to help.

pest control swflOur outdoor pest control services can focus on eradicating specific kinds of pests that originate outside of the home, like mosquitoes and fire ants. While these pests might not be inside your home, they can affect your enjoyment of your yard. Now we all know that Southwest Florida offers the perfect weather to enjoy your yard all year-long and we believe you should enjoy it bug free. If mosquitoes or other pests are using your lawn as a place to play, then you should call us right away, especially if you have kids or pets that regularly play outside. Outdoor pest control can also act as a barrier to incoming insects and rodents, reducing the number of uninvited visitors that make it inside your home.

Visually, we can identify many lawn problems including: chinch bugs, fungus, grubs, sod webworms, etc… Our residential pest control technicians can immediately identify your pest problems and eliminate them from your home and surrounding areas. Our specialized Outdoor Perimeter Pest Control Services will treat the foundation and edges of your home to create a barrier of protection. Our outdoor pest control and perimeter pest control is very safe and means no treatment inside the home is necessary, so you don’t even have to be home at the time of service.

Indoor and Outdoor pest control from Lenny’s Pest Control can improve the health conditions of your home and lawn. Many of these pests are not only annoying or scary but can actually affect your health or the health of your family or your pets. For example our pest control services eliminate bugs such as centipedes, field ants and spiders can bite or sting and may cause allergic reactions or carry diseases that can make you ill or even become deadly. Insects can also destroy your property including paper (as in books or documents), furniture, fabrics including drapes, furs and food.

When is Termite Season Anyway?

Termites in SWFL

When Does Termite Season Start?

Termite season does not have a set beginning and end, as termites are active year round. The season when termites are most visible – through swarms, discarded wings and droppings – coincides roughly with the Major League Baseball season (March to November).

In warmer climates, termites remain consistently active year round. In cooler climates, termites typically are less active during the winter months (November – February). While termites in these areas may slow down during the holidays, their continued activity means that they can cause damage at any time.

Termite Prevention SWFLHow Long Is Termite Season?

The period of time termites are visible depends on where you live. Subterranean termites do not forage for food when the soil is too hot or cold. Depending on which U.S. state you call home, you may experience moderate temperatures for a few months a year – or almost all of the year.

The weather is not the only factor impacting activity. Termite activity also depends on the degree of shelter a colony receives in its nest. Drywood termites located inside a warm home are not as exposed to temperature variations, so seasonal weather changes will not impact them as much. Similarly, subterranean termites may create nests up to 18 inches below ground and away from the cool air, or forage in more protected areas of their nest during the winter. So they are often tucked away from cooler weather and are protected. Any temperature that is somewhat regulated, can provide a perfect place for termites.

When Does Termite Season End?

While termites typically are not visible year round, they can damage your house any month of the year. Regardless of the season or the outside temperature, if you see signs of termite infestation, contact your pest control professional. A trained Termite specialist knows what to look for even in the “off season” of Termites. It is always better to have your home checked periodically, than have to repair costly Termite damage. As you can see from the map below, termite risk is very high in the Florida panhandle.

Termite Risk Florida

Tips to Prevent Subterranean Termites

  • Prevent mulch from piling up against the home’s exterior. Mulch beds are generally areas of high moisture, and some mulch can serve as a primary food source. When using mulch, keep a barrier of at least several inches around the home.
  • Remove scrap lumber, boxes, old books and newspapers from crawl spaces. They are edible and may entice termites.
  • Maintain ventilation in crawl spaces. If not, they become ideal nesting sites for termites and other pests.
  • Have your home inspected by a professional at least once a year. Prompt treatment and regular inspections may save thousands of dollars in damage repair.

Termite Solutions Fort MyersFlorida species of Termites

Subterranean termites: The most destructive type, these bugs live in underground colonies and nests can contain more than 1 million termites. To travel above ground, they build dirt-like tunnels to shield them from predators and the weather. Inside a home, they will devour wood, furniture, drywall and even books.

Formosan termites: A non-native species, they arrived on warships returning from World War II. Infestations include Florida and 10 other states so far. They also live underground, but their colonies are much larger, often with millions. Because of their extreme size, Formosan colonies can cause more damage in a shorter period of time.

Drywood termites: Unlike their cousins, they don’t nest in the soil or build “shelter tubes.” They establish small colonies in dry, sound wood. As drywood termites eat, they produce small fecal pellets that look like sawdust around the home.
