Daily flight activity of the rugose spiraling whitefly (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae)
Florida Entomologist 97 (4), 1842-1844
Abstract: The flight activity of the rugose spiraling whitefly (Aleurodicus rugioperculatus Martin; Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) peaked in the morning after dawn. There were significantly more whiteflies captured on sticky traps on the east side than on the west side of the plants between 6:00–10:00, which showed that this whitefly was strongly and positively phototactic during that time of the day. This whitefly displayed a second but smaller peak of flight activity in the evening near dusk.
