An ultrasonic fogging device for managing Bemisia argentifolii (Homoptera : Aleyrodidae) in greenhouse vegetables
Journal of Entomological Science 34 (4), 494-496
Abstract: Most conventional insecticide applicators do not privide adequate control of Bemisia argentifolii because a high percentage of the whiteflies are found on the lower surface of leaves. A fogger was found to give improved control in greenhouses. The trials were conducted in plastic greenhouses and the fogger unit was located outside with the duct of the fogger inserted through an opening in the plastic.
