Cotton-Whitefly

I have found whiteflies in Cotton today. The adults are very small white flying insects. The nymphs look like football shaped scales and will be on the underside of leaves. The treatment threshold is when the 5th leaf from the top of the cotton plant has 5 or more immature whiteflies on half of the leaves sampled.

Feel free to contact me if you need assistance identifying or help to decide if you need to treat with an insecticide
