Treating Lighthouse Point Spiraling Whiteflies

Lighthouse Point Spiraling Whiteflies are causing major damage to trees, palms, and other plants, including:

  • Christmas palms
  • Coconut palms
  • Ficus trees
  • Gumbo limbo trees
  • Arecca palms
  • White bird of paradise
  • and others.

As once you have Lighthouse Point spiraling whiteflies in your landscape, they’ll travel and lay eggs on just about any plant or tree, so we expect that list to grow.

From the University of California:

Whiteflies excrete sticky honeydew and cause yellowing or death of leaves. Outbreaks often occur when the natural biological control is disrupted. Management is difficult once populations are high.

Little information on the biology on the Lighthouse Point Spiraling Whitefly; however, the research is ongoing,

Lighthouse Point Spiraling Whiteflies Eggs Are Everywhere

As the Lighthouse Point spiraling whitefly devours your yard, it excretes a sticky honey dew that soils just about everything in sight — homes, autos, outside furniture, you name it.

It gets worse.

The honey dew will attract ants and black sooty mold — a mold which can also stop the plant’s photosynthesis.

Treating Lighthouse Point Spiraling Whitefly

The best way to treat Lighthouse Point is to inject the foliage with a systemic insecticide, combating the whiteflies and not the other insects who are eating the whiteflies.


Foliar spraying is somewhat effective , but expect the Lighthouse Point spiraling whiteflies to return in about 3 to 4 weeks.
