Sweetpotato whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae), a potential insect pest in Canada


, : Sweetpotato whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae), a potential insect pest in Canada. Canadian Entomologist 121(11): 1027-1028

Following its introduction into Canada from the USA, Bemisia tabaci was recorded on poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) and hibiscus (Hibiscus spp.) in greenhouses in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Alberta and British Columbia between November 1987 and December 1988. On 25 August 1988 this pest was identified on an outdoor crop (tomatoes) for the first time in Canada.
