Damage to Hedge in Boca Raton



There is a pest epidemic in 2016 attacking Ficus trees and hedges in Broward and Palm Beach Counties heavily affecting the Boca Raton, Lighthouse Point, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach areas, it is the Ficus Whitefly. They are small, winged insects that typically feed on the underside of Ficus leaves, seriously injuring the Ficus by sucking the juices from the leaves causing wilting, yellowing, stunting, leaf drop, and even death. The leaves usually begin to turn yellow before they drop from the plant. The adult whitefly resembles a very small white moth. Immature stages (eggs and nymphs) can be found primarily on the underside of the leaves and look like they are dotted with small, silver or white spots, which are actually the empty "skin" of the pupae after the adult emerges.

How to get rid of Ficus Whitefly: We at Delray Beach Pest Control Inc. spray our customers foliage with Tristar and/or treat the soil around the base of the tree or hedge with a systemic neonicotinoid (Safari, Aloft or Merit) and watered in with sufficient irrigation. If applied properly and watered in after application, this should provide sufficient control for several months, but will need to be reapplied on a continuous basis. If you have any Ficus on your property, we strongly recommend that you have us begin immediate treatments to avoid damage or even death of the Ficus, which could be very costly to replace depending on the amount of ficus you have. We service Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Lighthouse Point, Pompano Beach, and Ocean Ridge. Call us for a free estimate or if you have any questions. (561) 862-7326
