Rugose Spiraling Whitefly

Whitefly-UntreatedRugose Spiraling Whitefly (RSW) produces “honeydew,” a sugary substance that can stick to your house, car, or patio and make a real sticky mess. Leaves or fronds may have excessive and unattractive dark sooty mold that grows on the honeydew. Leaf drop may occur in some species of trees and plants.


An infestation of Rugose Spiraling Whitefly is generally easy to spot due to the sticky “honeydew” the insect produces. Black sooty mold may also grow on the honeydew, drawing further attention. The most obvious sign of an infestation is seeing the flies themselves as well as the white spiraling patterns they make on the bottoms of leaves, which may look like dust.
