Aleyrodes proletella (Linnaeus, 1758) - (European cabbage whitefly)
The species is widespread (mainly in temperate regions) on crucifers and other crops. The honeydew excreted by the insects, promotes the development of moulds.
Like for many other whitefly species, the eggs are laid in concentric circles on the lower side of the leaves. They hatch after a week and the nymphs develop through 4 instars. There are up to 5 or 6 generations per year under temperate conditions with one generation typically developing within 3-6 weeks.
